Home Means Nevada, Inc. (HMN), a state-affiliated nonprofit organization that administers certain functions of the Foreclosure Mediation Program, has launched a new, innovative tool for struggling Nevada homeowners as part of its ongoing COVID-19 response initiative.

Utilizing the existing foreclosure mediation portal, HMN has added The Homeowner Connect (THOC), a one-stop resource for homeowners experiencing financial hardship related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

THOC offers features and access to information for Nevada homeowners on the steps that can occur prior to a default and potential participation in the Foreclosure Mediation Program if the homeowner is eligible. Homeowners that are currently in a forbearance related to COVID-19, not making payments, unable to make payments, or in other situations can receive information on what their options might be from a HUD certified counselor.

Should mortgage relief and home retention programs become available and implemented at both the state and federal level in the future, the THOC portal will connect homeowners to the programs for which they are eligible.
