Homeowners who are facing foreclosure due to involuntary unemployment are eligible for federal assistance, but time is running out to get it. The U-S government created the HHF or "Hardest Hit Fund" when the housing crisis began in 2007.

But Mansfield foreclosure defense attorney Debbie Mack says there are unconfirmed rumors the HHF will expire April 30, so she urges eligible residents to apply through ESOP.

Mack says if you receive assistance from the "Hardest Hit Fund", your only obligation is to remain in your home for five years. Twenty-percent of the funding will be forgiven after each year.
