Consumer protection serves as a sound investment for New York, perhaps at no more critical time than when a family faces potential foreclosure. Our investment in foreclosure prevention helps keep families in homes. Our investment helps build wealth in workaday New York households. And our investment provides a critical lifeline to families in need of sound counsel in a crisis. When we make forward-thinking investments like those we advance today for foreclosure prevention, we help keep our communities whole and families on a path to realizing their dreams. I’m proud to support the work of the Foreclosure Prevention Network and the work of all those extending assistance when fellow New Yorkers need it the most.
