Mortgage help for Valley residents who lost unemployment benefits

Posted by BoNhia Lee on December 30, 2013 

Mortgage help is available for central San Joaquin Valley residents who lost long-term unemployment benefits when the federal compensation program ended on Friday.

But time is of the essence.

The Unemployment Mortgage Assistance Program administered through Keep Your Home California can help homeowners with up to $3,000 in mortgage payments a month for a year.

But to qualify, a homeowner has to have received unemployment benefits within the last 30 days. That means those who lost their benefits on Friday have until the end of the month to apply.

For more information, visit or call (888) 954-KEEP.
