GA HUD Booklet

Are You at Risk of Foreclosure? Know someone who may be having difficulty making house payments? We want you to know your options and act now to avoid bigger problems later.

The attached booklet is a compilation of information to guide and assist you. It is also available online (   – to print in booklet format, select 8½ x 11 inch paper, 2-sided print, flip on short edge).

We encourage you to provide this information to individuals and families in your community who may be in need of assistance in Georgia.

It contains valuable guidance, points of contact, and web links to sources of free assistance from HUD and other federal agencies, national and local government and non-profit partners, including what to do if your lender won’t work with you and how to identify and report a loan modification or foreclosure rescue scam.

Remember, you can always contact a HUD-approved housing counselor for free foreclosure avoidance counseling. Some HUD-approved agencies offer assistance in languages other than English. Call 1-800-569-4287 or visit to find one near you.
