OKLAHOMA CITY -- The government has extended its deadline to help homeowners struggling to make their payments.

The deadline was set to expire Friday, July 22, but has been extended until next Wednesday, July 27, according to Rebecca Jarvis of Homeowner Loans.

Congress set aside a billion dollars in the emergency homeowner's loan program. More than $15 million is available in our state.

Unemployed homeowners who are 90 days behind on payments can get up to $50,000. You can use the money to catch up on your mortgage and help with payments.

The loan is forgiven after five years if the mortgage is kept up to date.

Again, the deadline to file is Wednesday. Call 918-292-8900 or go to www.995hope.org.
