Financial Services Committee Holds Hearing on the Administration’s Progress in Preventing Mortgage Foreclosures

November 2, 2007

Washington, DC—Rep. Barney Frank, Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, conducted a hearing to examine recent progress in coordinating lenders, mortgage servicers, and nonprofit organizations to prevent mortgage foreclosures, encourage modifications of troubled loans, and assist at-risk homeowners. One focus of the hearing will be the “HOPE NOW” initiative; an alliance consisting of lenders, servicers, and community-based counselors whose formation was announced by the Departments of Treasury and Housing and Urban Development on October 10, 2007.
