Emergency Mortgage Payments

Many states will pay your mortgage in times of dire financial need.  For example, Pennsylvania has a law allowing financial assistance to people in danger of losing their homes to foreclosure as a result of a legitimate temporary hardship that is no fault of their own who have "a reasonable prospect" of resuming payments within a set time.  Any reputable housing counseling agency can tell you if this program exists in your area.  To find an agency near you, call:

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Housing Counseling and Referral Line:
(800) 569-4287

Or contact:

Housing Counseling Clearinghouse
P.O. Box 10423
