A variety of resources exist to help veterans who’re facing a foreclosure. But not all veterans know what kind of help is available or where to get it. A recently-passed bill (HB 2530) in Oregon aims to remedy this issue by ensuring that veterans get information about housing resources along with foreclosure documents.
HB 2530 also mandates that, on or before December 1 of each year, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and the Housing and Community Services Department have to submit a written report on veterans’ housing programs to the legislative committee related to veterans. The report has to, among other things, cover expenditures relating to veteran’s housing programs and describe programs to enroll veterans in (or inform veterans of) existing housing programs.
