The Trustee’s office has met this morning and we have outlined the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) that we will be disseminating. Please visit www.justice.gov/ust/eo/public_affairs/consumer_info/hamp/video.htm for a video description of HAMP. Also attached is a PDF (HAMP packet) of this new government program for your review or you may access by visiting www.MakingHomeAffordable.gov. Components of this program will be followed through with our office by implementation of the following:

1. Including HAMP in our Debtor Education Program.

2. Our Case Managers will note possible HAMP eligible homeowners.

3. Hearing Officers will discuss HAMP to the possible eligible homeowners at their §341 hearing.

4. HAMP video, packet w/information and website will be posted to our website.

5. HAMP brochure will be disseminated with the annual report to post confirmation debtors.

6. Discussion at the next Brown Bag Meeting November 17th, 2010 @ 12:00 p.m. in the basement of the U.S. Federal Building.

Please note we will not be providing legal advice to the debtor but will be directing them to the brochure on our webpage. We view this as an endeavor that can be accommodated by the debtor with or without possible help from your support staff. Please outline any time spent on HAMP as support staff services for any possible fee application.

We hope to see you at the Brown Bag Luncheon November 17th, 2010 for further discussion.

Kristina L. Ennis,
Operations Manager
