Started by the Department of the Treasury and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Making Housing Affordable (MHA) initiative is designed to help homeowners avoid foreclosure. On the site's homepage, visitors can learn about their eligibility for assistance, hear feedback from other homeowners who have participated, and sign up to receive email updates about these programs. Many of the materials here are contained within five primary sections, which include "Learn More", "News", and "Get Assistance". Also, visitors can learn about upcoming events sponsored by the MHA in their area, and also learn about potential housing scams. Additionally, visitors who work in the housing industry and non-profit organizations can use the "For Partners" area to find additional resources to help those people they work with.
