Hennepin County and the City of Minneapolis just announced that they will set aside $4.3 million, up to $35,000 per homeowner, to help make mortgage payments that were missed due to pandemic. Applicants will first need to apply for other loss mitigation options, for which assistance is also being provided. The funding for this came from Congress. Applications to the program can be made at www.HennepinHPP.com or by calling 651-236-8952

It is not yet clear whether other counties will follow suit.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy remains a viable option to stop foreclosure when other options don’t work, and we can help with that.
