Why the feds say a Ga. foreclosure program helped too little, too late

The program was supposed to save Georgia homeowners from foreclosure through the worst real estate downturn in decades.

But HomeSafe Georgia was beset with complaints from the beginning that it helped too few, too slowly. Now a federal audit requested by U.S. Reps. John Lewis, D-Atlanta, and Hank Johnson, D-Lithonia, says the program soaked up $32 million in administrative fees, all while failing to help worthy applicants.
