• HomeHelpNH 2015 Year-End and Program Review Report

    HomeHelpNH_report_2015_Final

    This report constitutes the 2015 year-end and the final program report for the HomeHelpNH initiative as funded by the State of New Hampshire through the Department of Justice and the Banking Department.  This program was created with the support of Governor John Lynch, the Executive Council and the Joint Legislative Fiscal Committee.  Once created, the program continued to receive support from Governor Maggie Hassan, the Executive Council, the Department of Justice and the Banking Department.

    The program was administered by New Hampshire Housing pursuant to a three-year contract with the Department of Justice and the Banking Department with $3.5 million from the National Mortgage Servicing Settlement.  This contract ended January 31, 2016, which marks the official end of the HomeHelpNH as funded by the State of New Hampshire.

    HomeHelpNH was a unique and effective use of the National Mortgage Servicing Settlement.  With the support of the Governor’s Office, the Executive Council and the Legislature, statewide foreclosing counseling worked collaboratively with 2-1-1 NH (intake and referral) and with the Foreclosure Relief Project (legal services provide through New Hampshire Bar Association, New Hampshire Legal Assistance and Legal Advice and Referral Center).  As this part of the initiative concludes, New Hampshire can be proud that HomeHelpNH provided counseling services to over 2,500 Granite Staters, helping them address a challenging situation with professional advice.

    This report provides an overview of the program and detailed data on performance.
