About this Grant:

Utilizing funds recovered by the AGO through a nationwide state-federal settlement over unlawful foreclosures, the Office of Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley (AGO) is pleased to announce the HomeCorps Assisting Homeowners at Risk of Foreclosure or Eviction Grant, which is designed to extend the work of the first in the nation HomeCorps program.

As the HomeCorps program has evolved over the past 18 months, the AGO has determined that combining both loan modification advocacy and borrower recovery/homelessness prevention services under one program overseen by a Master Grantee will best optimize resources and provide the most comprehensive and seamless services to distressed homeowners.

 

Eligible Applicants:

Applications are requested from qualified Massachusetts organizations with the expertise and capacity to serve as the HomeCorps Assisting Homeowners at Risk of Foreclosure or Eviction Master Grantee.

The Master Grantee would coordinate and oversee a statewide program which works directly with families and individuals facing foreclosure and eviction. While the full spectrum of homelessness prevention services is detailed in the “anticipated services” sections of this RFP, it is projected that the majority of services provided to homeowners (approximately 80- 90%) supported by this grant program will focus on assisting with loan modification related services.
