The hurting oil industry and recent county budget cuts are making it tough to keep up with bills piling up for some Kern County residents.  Some homeowners struggling to pay bills can explore the “Keep your home California” option.

Today, 23ABC’s Mike Boyce spoke with realtors Sheeza and William Gordon, one of the top realtor teams servicing Kern and Ventura Counties, to find out more about this program.

According to the organizations website, 66,475 Californians have qualified so far.  $1.4 billion of the allotted $2 billion has been used already, but Californians have until December 2017 to use the funds, if they’re still available.

Some of their programs are specifically designed for residents encountering financial hardships with recent layoffs and have fallen behind on mortgage payments. Unemployment mortgage assistance and Mortgage Reinstatement Assistance are some of the “Keep your home, California” programs.
