Wells Fargo, has invited more than 5,000 of its loan customers with troubled loans to the free home preservation workshop. Homeowners will be able to begin the process of applying for assistance from HomeSafe Georgia, a state government agency which provides mortgage payment assistance to unemployed and underemployed Georgians, for the first time.
Two non-profit groups that assist homeowners applying for help from HomeSafe Georgia, D&E Counseling and ClearPoint Credit Counseling Solutions, will be at the event to start the application process for aid. HomeSafe Georgia is a federally funded program that provides up to 24 months of mortgage payment assistance to homeowners who experienced hardship due to unemployment or underemployment during the last 36 months. It is administered by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. More information is available at www.homesafegeorgia.com.
