Brothers and Sisters:

The NAACP, national conventions and denominations and other partnership organizations are activating to assist homeowners whose primary residence was involved in a foreclosure process between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010 to apply for the free Independent Foreclosure Review. The Independent Foreclosure Review may provide financial compensation as well as other remedies for those who meet certain criteria.

TheIndependent Foreclosure Review will determine whether individual homeowners suffered financial injury and should receive compensation or other remedy because of errors or other problems during their home foreclosure process. All of your members who are interested or affected, should call the help line, immediately.

It is important the form is completed to the best of your ability.  All information you provide can be useful. Anyone believing they meet the criteria must have been a customer of one of the mortgage servicers listed below:
