The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development released the Homeowners Guide to Success as part of a public-private partnership between federal agencies and industry partners. The guide provides homeowners with information on the critical first steps to take if they are at risk of missing a mortgage payment or facing foreclosure.

The guide covers the importance of contacting your servicer early in the process. The guide also discusses the value of HUD-approved housing counseling agencies. The assistance HUD-approved housing counseling agencies offer at no cost to consumers, helps borrowers obtain independent, knowledgeable information and avoid scams.
