According to the Washington Post, President Obama announces the new $1.5 billion housing assistance initiative, dubbed an “innovation fund” which will help homeowners in five states as follows: Arizona, California, Michigan, Florida and Nevada. These five were singled out as being among those state in the U.S. that are most impacted by the housing crisis, where property values have dropped more than 20 percent, and homeowners struggle to make mortgage payments, and may face foreclosure, disproportionately, in spite of the existing loan modification programs, notably Making Home Affordable which was created a year ago. It will be financed through the federal TARP (Troubled Assets Relief Program), popularly known as the bank bailout funds.
