U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew announced Thursday that Treasury is extending the Making Home Affordable Program for another two years. The new expiration date is now set for December 31, 2015.
The program offers help to homeowners through solutions including the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP), Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA), and the Second Lien Modification Program.
As of March, an estimated 1.1 million struggling homeowners have received a permanent modification through HAMP.
The move aligns with the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s (FHFA) extension for the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), which was first announced in April.
