HUD expects to post its FY2010 MMMSA NOFA on www.Grants.gov later this year. The MMMSA NOFA will establish the deadline for applications and all thresholds and selection factors governing the competitive distribution of this assistance. In addition to the application requirements set forth in the NOFA, applicants will also be required to comply with applicable requirements established in HUD’s FY2010 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) Policy Requirements and General Section to HUD’s FY2010 NOFAs for Discretionary Programs (General Section) posted on Grants.gov on June 7, 2010. The MMMSA NOFA supports the delivery of counseling services to homeowners to prevent or resolve mortgage delinquency, default, and foreclosure, with the primary objective to preserve homeownership.
