Supporting Homeownership

Obama plans to implement a legislative plan to support responsible homeownership by making millions more eligible for streamlined refinancing as well as helping families avoid foreclosure by making 12-month forbearance for unemployed borrowers an industry standard. The budget proposal also provides $55 million for housing counseling programs for households at risk of foreclosure. (Photo: Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images)
