Mortgage Assistance Program
The Mortgage Assistance Program (MAP) is New York City’s foreclosure prevention loan fund. Funded by the City and private funders, including the Ford Foundation, MAP helps homeowners who are at risk of foreclosure and unable to get assistance from other foreclosure prevention programs. MAP funds can be used to bring a mortgage current, help get a modification, or pay off a mortgage completely. MAP is for homeowners who could otherwise afford their home, but fell behind after experiencing a hardship.
Want to learn more about MAP? Call 646-786-0888 or 311 to be connected to a foreclosure prevention specialist who can help determine if MAP is the right fit for you.
Starting this fall, New Yorkers across the state can also apply for a MAP loan, through the New York State Mortgage Assistance Program (NYS-MAP). NYS-MAP is an enhancement to New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s Homeowner Protection Program (HOPP), which provides free legal and housing counseling services to New York homeowners at risk of foreclosure. Learn more at nysmap.org.
If you are a housing counselor or legal services provider, please use the MAP-App to submit your applications.
