Home Affordable Refinance Program

HARP - the Home Affordable Refinance Program - has been extended through 2016.  HARP was created by FHFA specifically to help homeowners who are current on their mortgage payments, but who are underwater on their mortgages. That is, they owe almost as much or more than the current value of their homes. Check out this interactive online map​ that shows the numbers of estimated borrowers eligible for HARP in every zip code, county, and Metropolitan Statistical Area in the country. To see if you qualify for HARP go to HARP.gov.
