Foreclosure prevention assistance available in Troy, Albany

Posted:

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:

  • Wednesday, Nov. 13 – 1 Monument Square in downtown Troy.
  • Thursday, Nov. 14 – Hudson-Jay Park, in Center Square in Albany, across from Wilborn Temple First Church, 121 Jay St.

"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.
