HOPE for Homeowners will now be an even more valuable and useful tool because of the changes HUD announced today and Secretary Preston and Assistant Secretary Montgomery deserve kudos for the leadership they demonstrated with these revisions. The improvements will enable more homeowners to qualify for this program and make it a more attractive option for lenders and servicers to consider.
