Foreclosure intervention: Urban League of Southern Connecticut receives grant for program

The Urban League of Southern Connecticut and its partner, Community Renewal Team, have been awarded a $2 million grant for foreclosure intervention efforts, according to a release.
The grant is part of $190 million Connecticut received in the national settlement with mortgage providers, the release said.
“The Urban League’s  program is designed to assist delinquent homeowners and those facing foreclosure through mediation, default counseling and loss mitigation,” the release said. “ULSC’s HUD certified counselors work with homeowners and lenders to modify mortgages and reach an outcome that keeps families in their homes  and communities thriving at no cost.”
The Urban League will operate the program in New Haven and Fairfield counties and the Community Renewal Team will handle Hartford, Litchfield, Middlesex, New London, Tolland, and Windham Counties.
To learn more about the program visit or contact Urban League of Southern Connecticut President and CEO Valarie Shultz-Wilson at 203-327-5810.
