TALLAHASSEE— Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink announced today that the Florida Housing Help Initiative she launched last year to assist Floridians facing foreclosure is joining forces with Pasco County Community Development, Community United Methodist Church of Holiday, and the United Way, to host a Florida Housing Help Workshop this Saturday from 9am to 2pm in Holiday. 
 
Pasco County homeowners are struggling, with unemployment rates climbing to approximately nine percent and a per-capita income of $27,600, and many Pasco County families are having problems staying in their homes.  Saturday’s Housing Help Workshop will include opportunities for homeowners to meet with mortgage lenders, HUD-certified housing counselors, local housing authorities, legal assistance, credit counseling services, and representatives from many other foreclosure assistance programs.
 
DATE:         Saturday, March 14, 2009
TIME:          9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
LOCATION: Community United Methodist Church
                  3214 U.S. Highway 19
                  Holiday, FL 34691
 
Pre-registrations are strongly recommended and can be made by calling 1-877-MY-FL-CFO (1-877-693-5236). For more information about this workshop or the FACT Team, log on to http://www.myfloridacfo.com/FloridaHousingHelp/.
 
The Florida Housing Help Initiative was inspired by CFO Sink’s Financial Action Team (FACT) which she established last year to make sure Floridians get their share of federal assistance fund.  FACT Team members represent a broad coalition of financial and housing stakeholders.
