HARTFORD — The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, Hope Now Alliance and Neighborworks America are sponsoring a foreclosure prevention workshop at the Connecticut Convention Center this Thursday.
Eric Rosengren, president and CEO of Federal Reserve Bank of Boston will join Gov. Jodi Rell on Feb. 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m to kick off the event.
Rell, citing the state’s unemployment rate, said residents are in need of assistance.
The aim of the workshop, organizers said, is to prevent foreclosures by bringing borrowers and lenders together to find alternative solutions.
The Connecticut workshop is modeled after the successful event held at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., in August in which about 2,200 borrowers who met with lender representative received loan modifications or work out offers, organizers said.
