NCLC has been working hard to create and disseminate resources to help attorneys and consumers navigate the COVID-19 crisis, including the following:
- Our new Digital Library article “Mortgage Relief for Homeowners Affected by COVID-19" outlines a variety of new protections for homeowners who may be having difficulty making mortgage payments due to COVID-related financial hardship — you can also view a free summary of the article here.

NCLC remains committed to providing consumers and attorneys with the most up-to-date information about COVID-related consumer protections, and continues to add content to our Digital Library article on Major Protections Announced in Response to COVID-19 and the COVID-19 & Consumer Protections page on our website as new information becomes available.
