State offers mortgage assistance

WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) -- For the fourth time, the state is reaching out to distressed home owners in danger of foreclosure.

Monday the Governor, the Attorney General and the State Banking Commissioner announced another home mortgage assistance event will take place next week.

"It's a free event designed to provide Connecticut home owners at risk of opportunity to meet one-on-one with their lender to get answers," said Commissioner Howard Pitkin, CT Dept. of Banking, "and hopefully work out some solution that will preserve their home ownership."

The event will be next Wednesday, November 28th from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Conference Center at CoCo Key in Waterbury, and you can pre-register online.

This won't help the $365 million budget deficit. I just hope homeowners that receive help now have the capacity to pay the mortgage in the future. I get it...the banks received bailouts so why shouldn't homeowners but I think there should be a minimum of 10% down for every home purchase.
