Plans and Reports
Keep Your Home California is a $2 billion, federally funded effort to help California families struggling to pay their mortgages through four different programs. Each of the programs are designed specifically for low or moderate income homeowners who are either unemployed or are facing another financial hardship, have fallen behind on their mortgages and owe significantly more than the value of their home.
The Keep Your Home California programs provide:
- Mortgage assistance of up to $3,000 per month for unemployed homeowners who are in imminent danger of defaulting on their home loans.
- Funds to help homeowners who have fallen behind on their mortgage payments due to a temporary change in a household circumstance. The program will provide up to $15,000 per household to reinstate mortgages to prevent foreclosures.
- Funds to reduce the principal owed on a mortgage for a home where the homeowner is facing serious financial hardship and owes significantly more than the home is worth. This program requires lenders to match any assistance provided for principal reduction.
- Transition assistance to help borrowers relocate to new housing situations after executing a short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure program.
