The State of Illinois is sponsoring an event to help homeowners who are struggling on their mortgage. The program has three goals – 1. Get consumers to meet with counselors or the lender sooner increasing the chance of success. 2. Provide education about the foreclosure process so homeowners can manage this crisis better. 3. Get homeowners to FREE counselors prior to being charged $3,000 to $12,000 and the possibility of the “company” disappearing with their money.
This is a FREE event and will take place at Elgin Community College, 1700 Spartan Drive, Building “B” Community Room, Elgin IL 60123. The event is sponsored by Governor Pat Quinn’s Office; Illinois Housing Development Authority; Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR); Illinois Department of Employment Security; and Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office and hosted by State Senator Michael Noland, State Senator Karen McConnaughay, State Representative Anna Moeller, State Representative Fred Crespo, State Representative Michael Tryon and the Kane County Foreclosure Task Force.
