Evaluating Progress of TARP Foreclosure Mitigation Programs With Elizabeth Warren Video

(LoanSafe.org) The Congressional Oversight Panel’s April oversight report, “Evaluating Progress of TARP Foreclosure Mitigation Programs,” commends recent changes to the mortgage modification program designed to reach more homeowners, but finds that Treasury is still struggling to get its foreclosure programs off the ground even as the crisis continues unabated.

Since the Panel’s last examination of foreclosure mitigation efforts in October 2009, Treasury has taken steps to address concerns that the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) did not adequately address foreclosures caused by unemployment or negative equity, including by establishing a voluntary principal reduction program. Despite these and other efforts, foreclosures continue at a rapid pace. In 2009, 2.8 million homeowners received a foreclosure notice, and nearly one in four homeowners with a mortgage currently has negative equity. While housing prices have begun to stabilize in many regions, home values in several metropolitan areas continue to fall sharply.

The Panel finds that “Treasury’s response continues to lag well behind the pace of the crisis” and that, even when HAMP is fully operational, they “will not reach the overwhelming majority of homeowners in trouble.” The report raises specific concerns about the timeliness, sustainability, and accountability of Treasury’s foreclosure programs.

"Hello Moe, I just wanted to tell you, your website has saved my life (literally), I stumbled on your site in the middle of losing my home, I was able to network with people going through the same thing as I am. I didn't feel alone anymore, I have tried to give back and counsel those that haven't walked in my shoes yet. We hear so much about what is wrong with America, I just wanted you to know, you are whats "right" with America."
