Kentuckians who have lost their homes during the national foreclosure crisis may soon find relief.
Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway announced $19.2 million will be given to various programs to prevent foreclosure, and one is right here in Bowling Green.
Kentucky Legal Aid will receive a quarter-of-a-million dollars to help low income families at risk of losing their homes.
"We've already done a lot of foreclosure work, but we've never had the resources to represent the number of people who are being harmed by foreclosure at this point," says Kentucky Legal Aid Executive Director Scott Crocker.
Kentucky Legal Aid in Bowling Green is one of four legal aid programs in the state to receive funding as part of the National Mortgage Settlement that gives the state 19.2 million dollars to aid at risk families. Kentucky Legal Aid provides assistance to low income people in 35 counties in western and south central Kentucky.
