That refers to loan modification. Stand in line...Not everybody will qualify for that rate. It depends on your income vs debt, value of home vs balance, credit, how far behind you are on your mortgage. It's basically a marketing tactic to get you to call. Average rate drop is to 4-6%. They usually will drop the balance of the mortgage and keep the rate the same so that when you come out of the modification you will pay the rate you had before with a higher balance. Yes, this will damage your credit.

Local or National goverment?
Did it sound like an infomertial? 1am?
I will suggest to contact your housing county department. It sounds like CALL NOW for details! and there are no details. Be carefull when giving your information.
