foreclosure-sample-letter-300x208State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant will co-host a foreclosure prevention workshop Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 9am-1pm at the Joliet Township High School West Campus.   Senator Pat McGuire and Representative Larry Walsh Jr. will host the event, with State Representatives Tom Cross, Emily McAsey and Natalie Manley as additional co-hosts.  

Over 30 workshops of this kind have been held throughout Illinois as an initiative of The State of Illinois’ Mortgage Relief Project (MRP).  MRP is a part of the Illinois Foreclosure Prevention Network and is dedicated to providing information and resources that can help homeowners take advantage of programs to lower their mortgages, avoid foreclosure and keep their homes.  IMRP also provides information on legal rights, credit counseling and avoiding scam artists. In addition, homeowners can also take advantage of private, one-on-one housing counseling with HUD-certified counselors during the workshop.

“I am pleased that The Illinois Mortgage Relief Project is able to provide these services to the people of Illinois,” said Sen. Bertino-Tarrant.  “The recession has affected everyone and it is important for people to get the information needed to help keep them in their homes during these difficult times.”

The Illinois Foreclosure Prevention Network coordinates this effort with the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation and the Illinois Department of Employment Security in order to provide a vast array of resources available at these workshops.

Homeowners interested in attending the event should bring the following documentation in order for IMRP to best serve them:

• Mortgage Statement
• 2010 & 2011 W-2 & tax return with all schedules
• Copy of rental agreement, if necessary
• 2 months of recent paystubs
