BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler says Maryland homeowners have received more than $220 million so far from a national mortgage settlement.
Gansler said Wednesday that 2,825 Maryland homeowners received the assistance between March 1 and June 30. The figures are part of an initial progress report.
Maryland's share of the $25 billion national mortgage settlement has been estimated at nearly $1 billion.
The relief includes mortgage modifications, principal reductions, deficiency waivers, refinancing and short sale financial assistance.
