Eighteen housing counseling programs in Virginia have received $4.2 million in grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, WAMU reported. The money is to go to help homebuyers, renters and the homeless avoid foreclosure or get their finances in order.

HUD gave out approximately $73 million nationwide, a 22 percent funding increase from 2009's levels. ClearPoint Financial Solutions in Richmond received $1.9 million and Catholic Charities USA in Alexandria is to receive $1.3 million for counseling.

Free money. Where do I get in line?

We're currently in the midst of the greatest mortgage refinancing frenzy of the past 5 or 6 years. Rates are now the lowest they've been since mid to late 2003, I worked with a company called "123 Mortgage Refinance" I refinanced my current mortgage to 3.12% search online for them if you are planning to do refinance.
