A new housing counseling program has been created to help Hudson Valley homeowners stave off foreclosure. The program is aptly called Hudson Valley Foreclosure Prevention Services and has received about $1 million in funding from the state and other foundations.
RUPCO is non-profit organization in Ulster County that will provide backing for the new organization as well as Hudson River Housing in Dutchess County. Offices for the new organization will be located in Kingston and Poughkeepsie. Counseling is offered free of charge.
