Earlier this year California Attorney General Kamala Harris secured Californians $18 billion as part of a settlement with Big Banks for their abusive practices against homeowners.
Most of this money is allocated to providing homeowners with principal reductions, refinances, and to repair communities blighted by foreclosures. There is also $410 million in cash to be used at California’s discretion, which the Attorney General planned to hand over to housing counselors and legal services agencies.
