State offers free mortgage assistance hotline

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee homeowners facing possible foreclosure can call a free hotline for help.

According to the state attorney general's office, Tennessee's Mortgage Assistance Hotline offers reliable information and referrals to free foreclosure prevention counseling.

The hotline is staffed Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Callers can get free counseling over the phone or get a referral for in-person counseling at a local nonprofit.

The hotline is a partnership between the state of Tennessee and the Homeownership Preservation Foundation -- a nonprofit that has been operating a national hotline for the past five years.

The number for the Mortgage Assistance Hotline is (855) 876-7283. More information is available online at http://www.tn.gov/attorneygeneral
