Principal Reduction Program: Lowers the principal owed on a mortgage by as much as $100,000 when the homeowner is facing a serious financial hardship and owes significantly more than the home is worth.
Transition Assistance Program: Provides up to $5,000 in relocation assistance for homeowners who can no longer afford their home when their lender agrees to a short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure.
Keep Your Home California is aimed at helping low and moderate income homeowners who are struggling with their mortgage payments amid the worst real estate crisis in generations. The programs are limited to homeowners who meet a number of criteria, including income limits and facing a documented financial hardship.
