Demand for these funds far exceeded the amount of funding available; eligible applicants requested more than $83 million in NFMC grant funds. In total, more than 840 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 two million families in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. Territories have received foreclosure counseling through the NFMC Program. It is estimated that more than 122,600 families facing the threat of foreclosure will be directly assisted with this tenth round of funding. Many more will be helped by the training of foreclosure counselors, provided through the NFMC Program.
