ALBANY, N.Y. -- Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced that he
is deploying the Department of Financial Services' Mobile Command Center to sites
in Troy and Albany to help provide foreclosure prevention assistance to
struggling homeowners in the Capital Region.
Department representatives will be available from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to meet homeowners in the MCC at these locations:
"We are continuing to proactively deliver assistance to homeowners across the
state that may be facing foreclosure," said Governor Cuomo. "As part of the
state's foreclosure prevention initiative, we are deploying skilled staff from
the Department of Financial Services directly to the Capital Region to provide
struggling families with hands-on advice about the options available to help
them save their homes."
The DFS foreclosure prevention program has been used to extend help to homeowners facing foreclosure since Governor Cuomo launched the program last year. The outreach program has visited locations throughout the state with high foreclosure rates.
Governor Cuomo will also deploy the DFS Mobile Command Center to additional locations in the coming days and weeks to help continue reaching struggling homeowners. Specific locations and dates will be announced in the future.
Homeowners unable to meet personally with DFS representatives are urged to the call the Department's toll-free foreclosure hotline, 1-800-342-3736, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Homeowners may also file complaints using the Department website at www.ny.dfs.gov.
