NJ HomeKeeper

Program Goal

HomeKeeper promotes neighborhood stability in New Jersey communities by providing financial assistance to eligible homeowners in danger of foreclosure as a direct result of unemployment or underemployment that occurred through no fault or decision or personal circumstance of their own. HomeKeeper assistance may be used to help these homeowners make their monthly mortgage payments and keep their homes while actively seeking work or participating in a job training program, or it may be used by those who recently found work to cover mortgage arrearages accumulated during the unemployment/underemployment period.

Eligible Homes

The homeowner's primary residence must be located in New Jersey and acquired on or before January 1, 2009. The home must be a one or two unit residential property. It may be an attached or detached house, condominium unit or cooperative unit or be a manufactured home on a foundation permanently affixed to real property owned by the homeowner and secured by a real property mortgage lien.
