NFMC Round 9
On March 13, 2015, NeighborWorks America announced that $44.8 million has been awarded to 25 state housing finance agencies, 18 HUD-approved housing counseling intermediaries, and 68 community-based NeighborWorks organizations to provide counseling to families and individuals facing the threat of foreclosure. Just twelve weeks after the ninth round of National Foreclosure Mitigation Counseling (NFMC) Program funds were appropriated, communities across our country will be able to put the funds to immediate use.

Demand for these funds far exceeded the amount of funding available; eligible applicants requested over $87 million in NFMC grant funds. In total, more than 1,100 nonprofit counseling agencies and local NeighborWorks organizations across the country are expected to be engaged in the NFMC Program as a result of these awards.
To date, more than 1.9 million families in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Guam have received foreclosure counseling through the NFMC Program. It is estimated that nearly 129,600 families facing the threat of foreclosure will be directly assisted with this ninth round of funding. Many more will be helped by the training of foreclosure counselors, provided through the NFMC Program.
