Foreclosure Counseling (NFMC)

1.8 million people helped The National Foreclosure Mitigation Counseling (NFMC) program was launched in December 2007 with funds appropriated by Congress to address the nationwide foreclosure crisis by dramatically increasing the availability of housing counseling for families at risk of foreclosure.

NeighborWorks America distributes funds to competitively selected grantee organizations, which in turn provide the counseling services, either directly or through sub-grantees.

Grants also fund legal assistance for homeowners and the training of foreclosure counselors. More than 1,700 counseling agencies participate in the program.

Program Highlights

NFMC announces supplemental grants funding for foreclosure counseling
Although the fiscal year 2017 Congressional appropriations bills have not become law, NeighborWorks understands that the demand for funds to support foreclosure counseling around the nation remains. NeighborWorks has made the decision to move forward with the application process for NFMC Program supplemental grant funding.

Supplemental grants may be made under this funding announcement competition as a result of recaptured or underutilized NFMC Program funding made available from previous grant rounds, from future appropriations or other sources. The amount to be awarded in supplemental grants is contingent upon the availability of these funding sources.
