The U.S. Department of Treasury has awarded $570 million to the state to help homeowners with in a variety of ways, including payment assistance, reinstatement assistance for delinquent mortgage loans and the facilitation of short sales.
The funding is being made available to homeowners on a first-come-first-served basis, officials said.
The local phone-a-thon is being hosted by City of Cincinnati, the Homeownership Center of Greater Cincinnati, CET, Fannie Mae, and the State of Ohio Restoring Stability Program.
Ohio also has a Web site at www.savethedreamohio.gov where residents can get applications and get more information on the program.
