GPUAC releases updated foreclosure guide

The Greater Philadelphia Urban Affairs Coalition’s Community and Economic Development department has released its Summer/Fall 2009 Foreclosure Prevention Resource Guide.

GPUAC began distribution of the latest hard-copy edition of the Guide at a training conference GPUAC’s Foreclosure Prevention Task Force co-sponsored with the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia on June 30th.  Now in its second hard-copy edition, the report is designed to help professional housing counselors and homeowners better navigate the mortgage foreclosure process.

The Guide provides up-to-date information relevant to the Philadelphia five-county region. It has been used by policy makers, elected officials and community advocates, housing counselors and other professionals.

GPUAC is a leader in addressing foreclosure in Philadelphia. In 2007, GPUAC’s CED Committee, recognizing the looming crisis, convened a Foreclosure Prevention Task Force with a team of bankers, housing counselors, legal aid attorneys, community advocates and local government agency representatives.

The Foreclosure Guide is just one of the outcomes of the Task Force, which has also laid out a vision for a foreclosure prevention system in the Philadelphia region. Other initiatives include a social marketing campaign, new banking products, and local and state-wide advocacy.

The guide can be downloaded here.
