EAST GREENWICH — For the various concerned homeowners – people that were worried about affording mortgages on a regular basis – that were in attendance at the New England Institute of Technology Saturday morning, two hours might’ve not have been enough to rid all of their worries regarding their financial positions with their homes.
But Saturday’s presentation involving members of the government and high-ranking housing and financial officials from around the state provided those aforementioned homeowners at least a point in the right direction to begin addressing their concerns.
Congressman Jim Langevin (D – R.I.), along with representatives from Rhode Island Housing, local banks and credit unions, hosted the “Navigating Homeownership 2012 Resource Workshop,” providing citizens any answers they need in order to keep their respective roofs over their heads and note the importance of the housing market to the state’s overall economy.
“This has been a priority for me in Congress,” Langevin said. “I’m trying to leave no stone unturned in trying to help people. I’ve been supporting those policies and voting for those policies to help people stay in their homes, whether it is mortgage modification or for assisting people that have lost their homes unfortunately.”
