New Bucks County Grant Will Cover Delinquent Mortgages Resulting From COVID-19

A new grant program will pay delinquent mortgages for qualifying individuals and families in Bucks County who have experienced reduced income as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Credit Counseling Center’s Foreclosure Counseling Program received a grant from Bucks County Department of Housing and Community Development to provide foreclosure counseling services and financial assistance for those struggling with mortgage payments because of the pandemic. While funds last, the grant will pay the delinquent mortgage amount for individuals who meet the unemployment, income, mortgage, property and eligibility requirements.

“We are pleased to be administering a new mortgage relief program for our neighbors in Bucks County,” said Joan Reading, MSW, Credit Counseling Center’s Executive Director. “This grant will bring homeowners’ mortgages current, and we will help families establish a plan to get on track for financial recovery from COVID-19.”

To see if you qualify to have your mortgage covered, or for other housing-related assistance, call to schedule an appointment with Credit Counseling Center: 215-348-8003.

Credit Counseling Center continues to serve its clients and help people gain control of their finances, with the help of grants from the Bucks County COVID-19 Recovery Fund, established by United Way of Bucks County with additional funding from Penn Community Bank. Credit Counseling Center also released the new 2020 COVID-19 Guide & FAQ for Personal Financial Relief & Recovery, with resources for navigating benefits and relief programs, and accessing the assistance that may be available.
