FORECLOSURE DIVERSION PROGRAM

Free Housing Counseling Available in Maine to Help You Avoid Foreclosure

            We are a state agency, and we have entered into contracts with non-profit groups all over Maine in order to help reduce foreclosures and assist homeowners struggling to make their mortgage payments. We can connect you with a free housing counselor located here in Maine to talk with you about your situation and to help you work with your mortgage company. Often, homeowners can avoid foreclosure if they take action.

 

Call the bureau’s Foreclosure Prevention Hotline, 1-888-664-2569 (1-888-NO-4 CLŌZ) to get connected to free advice and assistance you can trust. We’ll answer the phone in person Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. through 5 p.m., or if you leave a message during any evening or over the weekend, we will call you back the next workday.
