National Foreclosure Mitigation Counseling (NFMC)

The National Foreclosure Mitigation Counseling (NFMC) Program was launched in December 2007 with funds appropriated by Congress to address the nationwide foreclosure crisis by dramatically increasing the availability of housing counseling for families at risk of foreclosure. HCR is working directly with subgrantee organizations across New York State, which in turn provide counseling services to families at risk of foreclosure. Subgrantee organizations are also provided with training by NeighborWorks to ensure they can provide the best service to homeowners in our State. A list of our sub-grantees and their phone numbers is listed below.

The list of agencies below provide counseling services at no cost to individuals and families at risk of foreclosure. The counties they serve are included in the listing.
