America's Foreclosure Epidemic

100 Counties Most Likely to Benefit From The Economic Recovery Act of 2008

The "Hope for Homeowners Act" will help thousands of families save their homes but the impact of the foreclosure crisis has not been isolated to individual borrowers or investors. It has been felt broadly by communities, and county governments across the nation. The law strengthens neighborhoods hit hardest by the foreclosure crisis by providing $3.9 billion in Community Development Block Grants to states and localities to buy foreclosed homes standing empty, rehabilitate foreclosed properties, and stabilize local housing markets.

Here's our pick for the top 100 counties most likely to get the biggest boost from the new wave of Federal grants. (Compiled from RealtyTrac data )
