FHA Mortgage Rescue Program
Part of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, passed in July 2008, includes provisions to help struggling homeowners replace their mortgages with 30-year fixed-rate loans backed by the Federal Housing Authority (FHA). Available from October 1, 2008 through September 30, 2011, the Hope for Homeowners program is designed to help homeowners who can no longer afford their monthly mortgage payments and have mortgages that exceed the market value of their homes.
