Read the Documents Treasury Has Been Keeping Secret

Nov. 12: This index was updated with the certification cover letters for several more mortgage servicers.

In 2010 and 2011, ProPublica submitted Freedom of Information Act requests for documents showing how the government supervised its flagship foreclosure prevention effort, the Home Affordable Modification Program, or HAMP.

We will update this list if we receive additional material.

Systemic failures at the country’s banks and mortgage servicers have exacerbated the most severe foreclosure crisis since the Great Depression, and government efforts to limit the damage have fallen short. ProPublica created an unrivaled database of homeowners who have faced foreclosure, opened a Facebook page to encourage homeowners to share their stories, wrote profiles of some of them, and incorporated their experiences into our reporting. We also provided a comprehensive rundown of the numbers behind the crisis.
