Still Underwater on Your Mortgage?
Worried about Foreclosure?

Join us:
Wednesday, November 9, 6:30-7:30pm
at the Round Lake Area Cultural and Civic Center to learn about new options for Illinois homeowners



Two new forgivable loan assistance programs can help homeowners stabilize their mortgage once and for all. I-Refi provides up to $50,000 to eliminate negative equity caused by the economic downturn, while the Hardest Hit Fund offers up to $35,000 to homeowners working toward regaining employment and financial stability.  The Village is teaming up with Affordable Housing Corporation of Lake County (a not-for-profit organization) to explain how the programs work, who is eligible, and how to apply. Participating lenders and housing counselors will be on hand to answer your questions. The program is free of charge and open to all Illinois homeowners. Please contact Lisa Pugliese with questions or to register at 847-201-9186 olpugliese@rlbeach.org.

The State Treasurer is holding 2.5 billion dollars in unclaimed funds for Illinoisans. The State holds these lost funds until they are claimed by either the original owner or their heirs. Property is returned at no cost with the proper identification.
