Follow-up: Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure

At the beginning of the month, guest blogger Lil Ann Gray, an attorney with the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs, wrote a post on the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act. It has been an extremely popular and timely post for the SC Access to Justice Weblog.

Well, today I saw that  HUD had submitted guidance on June 18, 2009. Here is the link to their guidance.

Additionally, the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs has been very proactive with their own guidance here. And, please take a few moments to check out their blog at http://consumer.thestateonline.com/. It has helpful tips for South Carolina consumers!

Thanks Lil Ann, the SC DCA, and HUD.

$44 million infusion to 20 counties to mitigate foreclosures!

The South Carolina State Housing Finance and Development Authority (SCSHA) announced the $44,673,692 infusion to South Carolina via the U.S. Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) to help 20 counties with the highest foreclosure rates and targeted areas with high levels of subprime mortgages, mortgage defaults and delinquencies.

Greenville County received $2,262,856 and Richland County received $2,221,859 in separate allocations.

To review the HUD interactive map online, click here. According to the SCSHA, the NSP received allocations over $2 billion via the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Thanks to the Columbia Regional Business Report for tipping SC Access to Justice about the story.
