Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Home Protection Pilot Program Act. Requires the Illinois Housing Development Authority to implement a pilot program to assist Illinois workers who have lost jobs as a result of changing economic conditions in Illinois when those workers are in need of assistance to avoid losing their homes to foreclosure. Provides that the Program shall include counties selected at the discretion of the Authority on the basis of increased rates of foreclosure, actual foreclosure filings, unemployment, the need of local counseling agencies for increased capacity to serve clients in need of assistance to avoid losing their homes to foreclosure, the availability of funding, and other factors the Authority determines to be relevant. Provides for loans to homeowners secured by liens on residential real property located in Illinois, and prohibits a mortgagee from engaging in certain conduct upon a mortgagor's filing of an application for loan assistance. Sets forth other provisions of the Program. Requires the Authority to conduct a study and to report to the Governor and the General Assembly by May 1, 2009.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that neither the Governor nor any agency or agency head under the jurisdiction of the Governor has any rulemaking authority under the Act, but that the Governor may suggest rules by filing them with the General Assembly and requesting that the General Assembly authorize such rulemaking by law, enact the suggested rules into law, or take other appropriate action in the General Assembly's discretion.
