Keep Your Home California
Eighteen states, including California, have been designated as “hardest hit,” either because they are struggling with unemployment rates at or above the national average or steep home price declines since the housing market downturn. The Hardest Hit Fund® was provided by the federal government to provide targeted aid to families in these states.
On June 23, 2010, California received approval to develop unique foreclosure prevention proposals with Hardest Hit funding. California was ultimately awarded nearly $2 billion in funds to help eligible California homeowners avoid preventable foreclosures.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury announced the launch of an exciting national Public Service Advertising campaign to promote the Making Home Affordable (MHA) Program to help homeowners avoid foreclosure.
