Closing PA's Mortgage Assistant Program Has a Human Cost; 1776 President Young Joins Letter Urging Restoration
The PA Homeowner's Emergency Mortgage Assistance Program helped 46,000 families stay in their homes over two decades. Gov. Tom Corbett's budget cut HEMAP's funding by 80 percent this year, and Pennsylvania's homeowners now have nowhere to turn if a layoff, a death in the family, or other contingency threatens their ability to make their mortgage payments. Local 1776 President Wendell W. Young, IV has joined some 80 other labor leaders in the Philadelphia AFL-CIO and the community in signing a letter to the Governor urging him to restore funding for HEMAP in next year's budget.
