What was HAMP?
The Home Affordable Modification Program, or HAMP, was a federal program for homeowners. HAMP programs and loan modifications assisted borrowers who were struggling to stay current with home ownership expenses and mortgage payments. The U.S. Department of the Treasury and the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development managed HAMP under the Making Home Affordable (MHA) program. HAMP and its related programs expired on December 31, 2016. For more information about these programs, visit www.makinghomeaffordable.gov.
IMPORTANT: If you have submitted a complete application for one of these programs on or before December 30, 2016, or if you are in an ongoing MHA program, HAMP’s closing will not affect you. Ditech will continue to support and service your loan modification.
HAMP and other MHA programs are closed for new applications effective December 31, 2016
The MHA program included a number of homeowner assistance programs. These have all ended effective December 31, 2016.
- HAMP Tier 1 and HAMP Tier 2

- UP (Unemployment Program)
- HAFA (Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternative)
