A valuable resource:

A new website offering resources intended to help municipalities respond to the foreclosure crisis has been developed by the Center for Housing Policy, KnowledgePlex, Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), and the Urban Institute.

This new website can be found here:

The Web site includes a comprehensive policy guide of strategies for preventing and responding to foreclosures.

One of the most intriguing offerings of this new website is the ability to create customized data reports and maps for the entire state.

The Center works closely with a number of municipalities and county governments to let their residents know about the availability of free and confidential foreclosure counseling. If you work for a local, county or state governmental agency, and would like to have materials available for your homeowners, please contact Ed Nelson at the Minnesota Home Ownership Center.

The sooner homeowners begin the counseling process, the more options they have!
