At the Philadelphia Unemployment Project, PUP, 99er Rita Calicut begins to fill out an application for the Emergency Homeowner Loan Program (EHLP), the new U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) program targeting the unemployed struggling with mortgages. The program was authorized to begin October 1, 2010, but HUD has delayed implementation until April in Pennsylvania. In most other states the program is still not available as HUD continues to work on program design. All EHLP funds must be obligated by September 30, 2011 or be returned to the Treasury. Pennsylvania has $106 million to provide loans to homeowners delinquent on their mortgages due to unemployment or illness.
