By From page A3 | April 19, 2013

FAIRFIELD — California’s National Mortgage Settlement Grant Program awarded $9.4 million to 21 organizations to assist Californians affected by the state’s foreclosure crisis, with some of the money coming to Solano County.

The grants will help many of the state’s neediest homeowners and families, said a press release issued by state Attorney General Kamala Harris. They will give homeowners and families the financial and legal tools they need to recover, it said.

Community Housing Development Corp. will get $450,000. It provides housing counseling, legal services and financial management and asset building services in Solano, Contra Costa, Napa and Alameda counties, including through the Sparkpoint programs in Fairfield and Vallejo.

Fair Housing Marin will get $200,000. Among other things, it will research trends in maintenance and marketing of real estate-owned properties in Solano County communities of color.

Legal Services of Northern California will get $725,000. It will provide services to reduce or remedy the effects of home loss in 23 counties, including Solano County.
