POLK COUNTY -- Opportunities are still available for distressed Polk County homeowners receiving unemployment benefits to apply for the Mortgage Payment Assistance Program (MPAP).
The program is offered by the Oregon Homeownership Stabilization Initiative (OHSI) and designed to help Oregon homeowners receiving unemployment benefits avoid the threat of foreclosure. For qualified applicants, the program makes up to 12 months of mortgage payments, up to $20,000. Payments will be sent directly to the mortgage lender or service each month.
MPAP has new opportunities to apply every two weeks on Wednesdays at noon. Check the program page at www.oregonhomeownerhelp.org for availability schedule. The OHSI website provides helpful information about the application process, including a how-to video that answers the most common questions about the program.
Homeowners without Internet access can receive assistance at Polk Community Development Corporation, 657 Main St., Dallas, or call 503-986-2025 for alternative solutions.
