LAS VEGAS -- If you're one of the thousands of Clark County residents having trouble making your mortgage payment, help may be on the way.
The federal government is rolling out a plan to help people stay in their homes. The Mortgage Assistance Program will provide $38.5 million to more than 12,000 homeowners in Clark County. It is expected to help 22,000 statewide.
The Nevada Affordable Housing Assistance Corporation says it's an ideal plan for those that just need a little financial help to stay in their homes.
"It is designed to help those people that are unemployed or underemployed with their mortgage payments during their time of economic stress," said Lon DeWeese, NAHAC.
The plan will provide homeowners with as much as $500 a month in mortgage assistance. That assistance can last for as long as six months.
