February 13, 2012 — Report

This report follows up on an earlier study of foreclosure mediation programs prepared by the National Consumer Law Center in 2009. Our 2009 report recommended program designs and best practices for mediation programs. Recommendations from the report have since been adopted in a number of states. The report raised some questions about the lack of data supporting the effectiveness of foreclosure mediation programs. Those questions are in large part answered in this report.
