The Nevada's Hardest Hit Fund is launching new programs to help struggling homeowners.

Contact 13 exposed the fund as part of a nationwide report showing how those who needed help the most were often denied.

Now the Nevada Affordable Housing Assistance Corporation says it's partnering with the Treasury Department to deliver $80 million in help.

The goal of these programs is to stabilize neighborhoods by helping prevent avoidable foreclosures and keeping homeowners in their residences.
