In conjunction with the U.S. Department of Treasury, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Hope Now Alliance and NeighborWorks America, Rep. Johnson was pleased to hold Help for Homeowners at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis.

“High foreclosure rates have plagued us for years, tearing at the fabric of our neighborhoods and communities,” said Rep. Johnson, who has been fighting foreclosures since he was a county commissioner in 2001.

“I’m encouraged that we’ll have mortgage lenders on hand to begin the process of helping homeowners, who no fault of their own, have fallen behind on their mortgages,” he said.

More than 2,350 residents attended the free event that offered homeowners a chance to meet one on one with their lenders, find out if they qualify for President Obama’s Making Home Affordable program and offers the platform for struggling homeowners to work out other options with their lenders.
