Foreclosure Education Centerneed-advice

Many areas of NJ have seen an increase in the number of foreclosures.  At one point Atlantic County led all U.S. metropolitan areas in foreclosure activity rates.  Cape May, Cumberland and Ocean counties also saw increases in foreclosure activity.  I’m here to provide education to home owners facing foreclosure, giving them options and hope.

More Help for Homeowners Threatened by Potential Foreclosure

Through Legislative Action passed on January 24, 2022, the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency’s (NJHMFA) Foreclosure Mediation Assistance Program (FMAP) has been permanently expanded to include homeowners who may need counseling to help prevent possible foreclosure.  These services are available at no cost to the public.

The FMAP was originally designed to assist those homeowners that had already been served a Foreclosure Complaint and Summons by providing mediation assistance through HUD certified housing counselors to qualified applicants of the New Jersey Judiciary’s Foreclosure Mediation Program.   FMAP now offers “up-front” or pre-foreclosure counseling assistance, to homeowners experiencing default or difficulty meeting their monthly mortgage payments.  By utilizing a network of participating housing counseling agencies serving in each county, counseling is available now and can be provided remotely.   To learn more about the New Jersey Judiciary Foreclosure Mediation Program you can visit
