Help Us Report on Obama’s Mortgage Mod Program

Getty ImagesLast month President Obama launched the so-called homeowner bailout—a $75 billion plan that he said will help an estimated 9 million American borrowers modify or refinance their mortgages.

Rather than take his word for it, in the coming months, we’re going to be tracking just how successful the plan is.  In particular, we’ll be following several borrowers who are looking for relief.

That means we need your help. If you are applying for a loan modification through the government’s plan, we want your story.  Also feel free to forward this request on to family, friends and neighbors.

Typically, those applying are struggling to keep up with payments or are already in foreclosure. If you’re unsure whether you’re going to apply, here is Obama’s eligibility quiz to help. One warning: Just because you qualify, doesn’t mean your lender or loan servicer is participating. So far, six have signed up. We’ll update you as additional servicers join.

Sign up below and we’ll be in touch with you.
