OBAMA ADMINISTRATION EXTENDS APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR THE
MAKING HOME AFFORDABLE PROGRAM

Extension through December 2015 Will Provide Struggling Homeowners Additional Time to
Access Sustainable Mortgage Relief and Align End Dates for Key Assistance Programs

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury and the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development today announced an extension of the Obama
Administration’s Making Home Affordable Program through December 31, 2015. The new
deadline was determined in coordination with the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA)
to align with extended deadlines for the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) and
the Streamlined Modification Initiative for homeowners with loans owned or guaranteed by
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The Making Home Affordable Program has been a critical
part of the Obama Administration’s comprehensive efforts to provide relief to families at
risk of foreclosure and help the housing market recover from a historic housing crisis. The
program deadline was previously December 31, 2013.
