Nevada Hardest Hit Fund® will assist eligible applicants by paying up to a maximum of $1,000 monthly toward their first mortgage payment, including principal, interest, property taxes, and insurance for up to nine (9) months.
Nevada Hardest Hit Fund® will assist eligible applicants who have successfully completed the Mortgage Assistance Program by paying up to a maximum of $12,500 toward arrearages and/or accrued penalties and late fees.

As reported on NPR by Joseph Shapiro,
"In Augusta, Ga., a judge sentenced Tom Barrett to 12 months after he stole a can of beer worth less than $2.
In Ionia, Mich., 19-year-old Kyle Dewitt caught a fish out of season; then a judge sentenced him to three days in jail.
In Grand Rapids, Mich., Stephen Papa, a homeless Iraq War veteran, spent 22 days in jail, not for what he calls his "embarrassing behavior" after he got drunk with friends and climbed into an abandoned building, but because he had only $25 the day he went to court....people sometimes go to jail when they fall behind paying these fees.

Raquel will discuss things you need to know about getting financial aid at a large university.
Leisa Peterson, MBA, CFP® is the founder of WealthClinic, a global community that helps people improve their relationship with money through online interactive workshops and retreats.
Leisa’s a pioneer in the field of financial mindfulness. If you’ve never heard that term before, it’s because it’s radically new...which hints at how leading edge Leisa’s WealthClinic programs are. Because Leisa does something no one else ever thought of before: she combines mindfulness practices with finance.
We may think mindfulness and finance are two completely opposite worlds, but Leisa discovered they’re actually linked tightly together.
Before founding WealthClinic, Leisa spent 22 years in executive roles for some of the largest financial institutions in the United States. At the same time, she spent 15 years meditating andteaching others how to use mindfulness in their day-to-day activities.
For years, she witnessed rational clients, loved ones, and herself doing crazy things around money. Which made her wonder, “Why do we do such things?” And “Why can’t we stop it?”
A professor of mine once said, "Why do I feel better when I have $20 in my pocket than nothing?"
92% of workers report high stress over money matters according to Corporate Wellness Magazine.
This stress results in migraines, insomnia, asthma, ulcers, and worse.
The New York State Social Work Conference has asked me to speak on just this topic in August. They're worried about their workers.
The stress hormone, cortisol, is designed only for short bursts of energy, like the zebra on the plains of Africa running furiously to get away from a lion.
Once the chase is over, and the zebra survives (if), the body returns to normal.
With chronic, long-term stress, as from money worries, long-term cortisol can damage almost every part of the body.
So getting money solutions to debt, taxes, saving for the kids' education, building an emergency account, and saving for sound retirement is good for your health.
