New York (CNNMoney.com) – President Obama's foreclosure prevention plan
has helped nearly 228,000 delinquent borrowers keep their homes, the administration said Wednesday.
That's up from a month ago, when roughly 168,000 people received long-term mortgage modifications.
Another 781,000 troubled homeowners were in trial modifications, through March, officials said. Of these, 108,000 have been approved for permanent modification by servicers and are awaiting borrowers' acceptance.
