The Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP)

Is HAMP still available? Read on to find out.

In 2009, the federal government unveiled the Making Home Affordable program to help homeowners stay in their houses and avoid foreclosure. One of the major components of the Making Home Affordable initiative was the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP). The goal of HAMP was to induce lenders and servicers to modify homeowners' loans so that payments become more affordable.

Unfortunately, the HAMP program expired on December 31, 2016.

HAMP Has Ended, But Other Programs Are Available

While the HAMP program ended in 2016, other programs, like the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Flex Modification Program, as well as VA, FHA, and proprietary (in-house) modification programs, now exist to help struggling homeowners modify their loans.
