The purpose of the meeting will be to provide community leaders with resources to educate and encourage the 21,000 homeowners in Miami who are eligible to refinance through HARP and could save as much as $200 per month.”We will be working with community leaders and other trusted sources to get the word out that more than 97,000 homeowners in Florida are still eligible for and can save money by refinancing through HARP,” Watt said. “We will also be providing information about the range of assistance available to homeowners in distress other than those who are eligible for HARP.”The event will include a panel discussion moderated by Maria Fernandez, Associate Director for the Office of Housing and Regulatory Policy at FHFA, and featuring representatives from various government agencies such as the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac as well as from local financial institutions.Florida has the most HARP-eligible borrowers of any state with 97,000, according to new data from the FHFA. Miami has the most of any metro area in Florida with 21,000, followed by Tampa (17,000), Orlando (11,000), and Jacksonville (9,000). There are more than 722,000 borrowers nationwide who are eligible to refinance through HARP, according to the FHFA. For the first eight months of 2014, the percentage of all refinances in Florida that were facilitated through HARP, 32 percent, was way ahead of the national pace of 17 percent. Overall, the number of borrowers refinancing through HARP has been declining for the last several months.Borrowers are eligible for a HARP loan if they meet the following requirements: Their loan must be owned or guaranteed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac; the loan must have been originated on or before May 31, 2009; LTV ratio must be greater than 80 percent; and they borrower must be current on mortgage payments. They must not have had a late payment in the previous six months or more than one late payment in the previous 12 months. Borrowers who could benefit from HARP are referred to as “in the money” borrowers; they are “in the money” if they meet all the HARP eligibility requirements, have a remaining balance on their loan of greater than $50,000 with more than 10 years left on their term, and have an interest rate of more than 1.5 percent more than current market rates.As of August 2014, about 3.2 million U.S. homeowners have refinanced through HARP since it was introduced by FHFA and Treasury in 2009 as part of the Making Home Affordable Program. FHFA previously hosted events similar to the upcoming Miami meeting in Chicago, Atlanta, and Detroit.

Governor Wolf Urges Pennsylvanians to Monitor Forecasts, Be Alert for Flooding Due to Heavy Rain

first_img Press Release,  PSA,  Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf and state officials from the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) are urging citizens to monitor weather conditions as a strong storm system moves across the state, bringing heavy rain, potential flash flooding and strong winds through Monday.“PEMA is always on alert to advise Pennsylvanians in advance of severe weather so that precautions can be taken to be safe and protected,” Governor Wolf said. “Given the unpredictability of heavy rain fall, potentially impacted Pennsylvanians should stay informed of developments as the storm falls.”“There are several ways to receive alerts from the National Weather Service, whether it’s with a NOAA weather radio or subscribing to a notification system,” said PEMA Director Richard D. Flinn Jr.According to the National Weather Service, the heaviest rain is expected to fall in northcentral and northeastern Pennsylvania, particularly Sunday evening into Monday. However, the potential for heavy bands of rain dropping as much as five inches of rain is possible across a much larger area. A secondary threat of strong winds on Monday could bring downed trees and power lines, since the ground will be so wet due to the rain.Flinn said it is important for the public to understand the difference between a watch and a warning because each represents a different level of action to be taken.A flood or flash flood watch means that conditions are favorable for flooding to occur. Residents should stay alert and watch for rapidly rising waters, including rivers and streams, and be prepared to move to high ground quickly.A flood or flash flood warning means that there is actual flooding, or flooding is imminent. Residents should act at once and move to high ground.Always follow the guidance of local emergency personnel or law enforcement if you are told to evacuate. Flinn said you should be familiar with multiple ways to evacuate places where you spend a lot of time, such as your home and work location.Flinn said motorists should stay alert when traveling during periods of heavy rain. Flood waters can rise quickly. NEVER drive through a flooded roadway – more than half of all flooding deaths occur in cars. While water on a flooded roadway might not look deep, the roadway could actually be washed away under the water, or the road could be compromised in a way that could make it unsafe to travel.To help ensure safety for motorists and emergency responders alike, state law mandates that motorists who drive around or through signs or traffic control devices closing a road or highway due to hazardous conditions will have two points added to their driving records and be fined up to $250. Penalties are higher if emergency responders are called to rescue motorists who disregard warning signs.
