CHICAGO, Ill (KSDK) - The Illinois Housing Development Authority received two federal grants to help homeowners facing foreclosure keep their homes.

The two NeighborWorks America grants, totaling $3 million, will allow 10,000 additional families access free foreclosure prevention counseling under the governor's Illinois Foreclosure Prevention Network.

IFPN is a one-stop resource to connect homeowners with important tools, including counseling services, legal advice, up to $35,000 in mortgage payment assistance under the Illinois Hardest Hit program, foreclosure prevention events and tips on how to avoid mortgage fraud.

Illinois residents who are having trouble paying their mortgage, facing foreclosure or know someone who is, should reach out to IFPN as soon as possible by calling the toll-free hotline at 855-KEEP-411 or by visiting www.keepyourhomeillinois.org.
