Foreclosure Prevention Counseling

Brooklyn Cooperative Federal Credit Union understands that in these tough economic times, many low- and middle-income home owners are struggling to keep up with their mortgage payments. As your neighborhood credit union, we’re committed to providing you with the assistance that will help you stay in your home when possible, or choose from the best alternatives when necessary.

Foreclosure Prevention

Our Foreclosure Prevention Program is designed to give you that help, no matter which lender you have.

Free Advice Tailored to You
In cooperation with our nonprofit affiliate, Grow Brooklyn, our counselors will sit down with you to:

  • Go over your income and expenses
  • Help you set up a budget
  • Review mortgage documents with you

Assistance with loan modifications
If you need to modify your loan, a counselor will

  • Explain the options that are available to you
  • Help you understand which one might be right for you
  • Guide you through government- and bank-specific programs when necessary
  • Help you in talks with your lender

Making Home Affordable Program
Grow Brooklyn works with the government’s Making Home Affordable Program, which helps home owners to make monthly payments more affordable by modifying or refinancing a troubled mortgage.

Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives Program
