Help for Struggling Homeowners

Willamette Neighborhood Housing Services is gearing up to help Benton County homeowners who are struggling to pay their mortgages. WNHS has been selected to partner with the State of Oregon in delivering the Mortgage Payment Assistance Program to Benton County residents. The program will help at least 5,000 Oregon homeowners pay their mortgages for up to one year, or $20,000, whichever comes first.

Beginning Dec. 10, 2010, Benton County residents can apply online for the state’s new Mortgage Payment Assistance (MPA) program at www.oregonhomeownerhelp.org. Applications for the program will be open from Dec. 10, 2010 to Jan. 14, 2011.
