Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Rochester was awarded $46,000 as part of Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s Homeowner Protection Program in an effort to provide counseling services to those in danger of foreclosure.
Earlier this year, New York, along with 48 other states and the federal government, reached a $25 billion agreement to reform the servicing and foreclosure practices of the nation’s five largest mortgage servicing banks.
The attorney general’s office is committing $60 million over three years to fund housing counseling and legal services for New York homeowners. CCCS of Rochester will help provide the counseling part of the settlement in Monroe County and the surrounding counties, including Livingston, Ontario, Wayne, Orleans, Genesee and Wyoming.
