The N.C. Foreclosure Prevention Fund
helps North Carolina homeowners who are struggling to make their mortgage payments due to job loss or temporary financial hardship, such as divorce, illness or death of a spouse. The Fund also assists returning veterans who are transitioning to civilian jobs.
For qualified homeowners, the Fund can provide an interest-free loan of up to $36,000 to pay your mortgage and other related expenses for up to 36 months while you search or retrain for new employment. If you are currently employed but have a second mortgage that is unaffordable because of a prior job loss or reduced income, the Fund offers an interest-free loan of up to $30,000 to pay off your second mortgage. The Fund may be able to reinstate your loan if you have fallen behind on payments due to a job loss but are now eligible for retirement, Social Security, disability or Veterans Administration benefits that would allow you to resume mortgage payments. The Fund provides assistance at no cost to you.
