Center Partners Win Several Awards

The Minnesota Home Ownership Center is pleased to partner with several award winning agencies and organizations that are working with us on our foreclosure prevention efforts to help keep Minnesota families in their homes:

Hennepin County:

Hennepin County has been honored by the National Association of Counties (NaCO) with a 2009 NaCO Achievement Award for the County's Foreclosure Prevention and Response Program. Not only was the County an award winner, but they were declared "Best In Category" for 2009. Congratulations to Jeff Strand (Administrative Supervisor Foreclosure Prevention & Response Program Tax-Forfeit & Property Revenue Program Taxpayer Services [That's quite a title, Jeff!]) for the award.

Hennepin County has worked with the Center at a number of levels from marketing and outreach to direct homeowner assistance through workshops at the County Libraries. For more information about upcoming workshops at the Hennepin County Libraries, click here.
