Please see the information below about making calls today to make sure that Foreclosure Prevention Services in New York State don’t end on March 31, 2019.
It is particularly important that we focus on getting the $20 million for foreclosure prevention in the State Senate budget, so please make sure to call your State Senator first.
And please call any Democratic State Senator that you have a relationship with since the Democrats are in the majority in the Senate which means they control the budget process. If you need to double check who your State Senator or Assembly member is you can do so here:

p.s. We are also doing a twitter campaign all day today so please go to @LIFairHousing to amplify our posts.
The Communities First campaign needs $20 million in this year’s budget to continue critical housing counseling and legal services for homeowners in foreclosure. Funding ends March 31st for the network of 89 non-profit providers. Without funding, services will be reduced statewide and gone completely in some parts of the state.
Call the toll-free numbers TODAY to be connected to your state legislators:
- 1-844-655-7463 to be connected to your Senators
- 1-844-655-7460 to be connected to your Assemblymembers
“Hello, my name is ______ and I am calling to tell Assemblymember/Senator _______ that there is no funding in the Governor’s budget for housing counseling and legal services for New Yorkers facing foreclosure, including seniors with reverse mortgages.
