If you are current on your mortgage and have been unable to obtain a traditional refinance because the value of your home has declined, you may be eligible to refinance through HARP. HARP is designed to help you refinance into a new affordable, more stable mortgage. The HARP loan is a new loan and will require a loan application and underwriting process. Loan refinance fees will apply.

To apply for HARP, applicants must first meet 4 basic criteria:
- The existing mortgage must be guaranteed by Fannie Mae or by Freddie Mac
