Help for your mortgage is finally here

Question:

I am behind on my mortgage and still looking for a new job since I was recently laid off. Please, is there any help for someone like me?

Answer:

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is helping eligible homeowners behind on their mortgage and who have become unemployed, had a reduction of income due to the economy or became ill.
