HELENA – The Montana Department of Labor and Industry has extended the application deadline for a program that provides mortgage relief to unemployed homeowners until Dec. 31, 2013.

The Making Home Affordable program, which also provides foreclosure alternatives,
“will help those Montanans struggling to find employment stay in their home until they can get back on their feet,” said Labor Commissioner Pam Bucy.

Administered by the federal departments of the Treasury and Housing and Urban Development, the program helps reduce or suspend mortgage payments on a case-by-case basis for 12 months or more while individuals search for work.
