URGENT NOTICE: Relief Available for Homeowners Affected by Hurricanes and Other Disasters. Learn More ›

December 15 Long Island Relief Event

Fannie Mae mortgage specialists will be available at HOPE Now’s “HOPE for Long Island” event on Saturday, December 15 to help homeowners with Fannie Mae loans determine their eligibility for special disaster relief options, including:

  • suspending or reducing mortgage payments (forbearance) for up to 12 months for eligible homeowners in FEMA-declared disaster areas.
  • suspending legal actions (i.e., foreclosures) in process for homeowners in federally designated disaster areas.
  • waiving any late payment charges and suspending credit reporting for any homeowner for whom relief is granted.
  • lowering mortgage payments permanently (modification) making them more affordable over the long-term.

Homeowners meeting with Fannie Mae should bring their monthly mortgage statement, information about other mortgages on their home, documentation of all income, and property insurance documents (if available). Homeowners with Fannie Mae loans can reach a Fannie Mae mortgage specialist outside of this event by calling 855-349-2293.

If You Are Not a Fannie Mae Homeowner, Assistance May Still be Available

HOPE for Long Island brings together mortgage industry companies, HUD-approved, nonprofit housing counselors, insurance companies and local partners to offer assistance to all homeowners affected by Hurricane Sandy. No appointment is needed, and both the event and parking are free. More information.

When: December 15, 2012
