Federal Agencies Issue Statement on Loan Modifications

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), federal financial institution regulatory agencies, in consultation with state financial regulators, issued a revised interagency statement encouraging financial institutions to work constructively with borrowers affected by COVID-19 and providing additional information regarding loan modifications. The revised statement also provides the agencies’ views on consumer protection considerations.The revised statement clarifies the interaction between the interagency statement issued on March 22, 2020, and the temporary relief provided by Section 4013 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, which was signed into law on March 27, 2020. Section 4013 allows financial institutions to suspend the requirements to classify certain loan modifications as troubled debt restructurings (TDRs). The revised statement also provides supervisory interpretations on past due and nonaccrual regulatory reporting of loan modification programs and regulatory capital.The agencies encourage financial institutions to work with borrowers and will not criticize institutions for doing so in a safe-and-sound manner. The agencies view prudent loan modification programs offered to financial institution customers affected by COVID-19 as positive and proactive actions that can manage or mitigate adverse impacts on borrowers, and lead to improved loan performance and reduced credit risk.The agencies’ examiners will exercise judgment in reviewing loan modifications, including TDRs, and will not automatically adversely risk rate credits that are affected by COVID-19, including those considered TDRs. Regardless of whether modifications are considered TDRs or are adversely classified, agency examiners will not criticize prudent efforts to modify terms on existing loans for affected customers.For borrowers who may be facing foreclosure, the CFPB has released several resources to help consumers take steps to protect their finances during the COVID-19 pandemic, including a reminder to consumers to contact their lenders if they cannot make their payments. Many lenders are now providing forbearance loan extensions, a reduction in interest rates, and/or other flexibilities for repayment. The Federal Housing Finance Agency has authorized Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to enter into additional dollar-roll transactions—provide mortgage-back securities investors with short-term financing.

Tasikmalaya authorities urged to revoke discriminatory decree against Ahmadiyah

first_imgRights group Amnesty International Indonesia has urged the Tasikmalaya administration in West Java to revoke its latest decree preventing a congregation of the minority Muslim group Ahmadiyah from holding prayers and renovating their mosque on the grounds that the policy is discriminatory and counter to basic human rights.“The decision to block the community from using their mosque was made on discriminatory grounds and without any consultation. It’s just the last example of the authorities in Indonesia targeting Ahmadis purely for their religious beliefs,” Amnesty International Indonesia executive director Usman Hamid said in a statement on Tuesday.“This local decree should be withdrawn immediately and the community allowed to worship in their mosque as they please.” Local authorities in the regency, including Tasikmalaya regent Ade Sugianto, signed the joint decree on Jan. 27. The representatives of the local Ahmadiyah group had only received the copy of the decree last Saturday.Usman criticized the authorities’ argument that the ban aimed to prevent unrest. He stressed that it was the local administration’s responsibility to keep everyone, including the Ahmadis, safe in practicing their beliefs.“The authorities must stop this culture of discrimination and encourage all people to practice their faith freely,” he added.Read also: Officials halt reconstruction of Ahmadiyah mosqueAhmadiyah congregation chairman Nanang Ahmad Hidayat previously said that the decree consisted of nine key provisions, including one prohibiting members of the group from performing religious activities in public and one banning the renovation of Al-Aqso mosque, located in Cipakat village, Singaparna district, Tasikmalaya.Ahmadiyah groups have long been targets of discrimination and persecution in the country with some local administrations sealing mosques and banning members from performing religious activities over protests from intolerant groups.Topics :last_img read more

Australia’s Victoria requires masks for Melbourne hit by COVID-19

first_imgPeople in Melbourne must now wear masks when leaving their homes as Victoria, Australia’s second most-populous state, marked two weeks of triple-digit increases in new coronavirus infections on Sunday.Melbournians not wearing face coverings will be fined A$200 ($140), said Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews.Victoria, which has forced nearly 5 million people into a partial six-week lockdown on July 9, reported 363 new cases of the coronavirus on Sunday, after 217 cases the previous day. “We’re going to be wearing masks in Victoria and potentially in other parts of the country for a very long time,” Andrews told a televised briefing.”There’s no vaccine to this wildly infectious virus,” he said. Masks are “a simple thing, but it’s about changing habits, it’s about becoming a simple part of your routine.”Australia has recorded about 11,800 cases of COVID-19, a fraction of what has been seen in other countries or even some US states, but an outbreak of community transmission in Victoria has been growing, prompting authorities to restrict social distancing.Three COVID-19 deaths were reported in Victoria on Sunday, bringing the total to 38 and raising Australia’s death toll to 121.New South Wales, the most populous state, has seen new cases in the low double digits in recent weeks and growing. Health officials are concerned about the transmission rate, which they say is higher than in Victoria.About 60 people in Sydney face a fine of $1,000 each after attending a party Saturday night and breaking the public health guidelines of no more than 20 visitors to a home, police said. Topics :last_img read more

KMJ Performance signs on as sponsor for special events in six IMCA divisions

first_imgHe started Assault Race Cars with Randy Havlik in 2017 and bought both Victory Chassis and Zero 1 Shocks last year. “This program is a good way for us to get our feet wet with IMCA and get national exposure,” KMJ owner and long-time Modified driver Tony Hofbauer said. “This will be a good thing for us and for the drivers.” Those certificates will be given at designated specials for IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Late Models, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods and Smiley’s Racing Products Southern SportMods.  Drivers in the same four divisions competing in Assault and Victory cars receive free pit passes when they race this season at Marshalltown. They’ll also receive a 2020 chassis for winning the 2019 track title there.  STORY CITY, Iowa – New sponsor KMJ Performance makes a top five finish pay off even more at 80 IMCA special events in 2019.  KMJ’s initial sponsorship program extends to the biggest event in all of dirt track racing, as a 2020 chassis will be awarded to any Modified, Stock Car, Hobby Stock or Northern SportMod winning the Saturday night main event at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s in an Assault or Victory ride. KMJ now has 32 employees working in Story City. A 45,000 square foot building is home to corpo­rate offices, storefront and aluminum fabricating, with a 40,000 square foot building home to warehousing and a welding shop. Havlik was the 2009 Super Nationals Modified champion; Hofbauer was runner-up in the 2003 event. The Story City, Iowa, chassis and high performance parts manufacturer and distributor gives $200 gift certificates good toward the purchase of any four shock package, or $250 certificates, applicable in the purchase of any Victory or Assault chassis.  “The flexibility of this program will work very well when targeting special events across the country,” noted IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “We are able to give drivers a second option when it comes to the award package and that will really be beneficial at certain events. We are really looking forward to working with Tony and his team at KMJ this season.” Information about both brands of chassis and all KMJ products is available at the www.kmjperformance.com website and on Facebook.  Hofbauer started KMJ – the initials of his kids’ first names – at his farm south of Ames in 2005, after selling his interest in Midwest Motorsports. “Randy and I have known each other for a long time but this is something neither one of us ever envisioned,” Hofbauer said of KMJ’s rapid growth. “We ship 4,000-5,000 orders a week and manufac­ture a private line of Assault Racing Products.”last_img read more

Building Friendships in a Makerspace

first_imgThe STEM Music Academy at 30 Monmouth St. is billed as a “makerspace” by founder and owner Kevin M. Patrick. RED BANK – Wall-to-wall PCs stocked with the latest design software, Oculus Rift VR and eSports gaming stations and a fully developed live music performance space are just part of the allure of the technological wonderland recently launched in the heart of the borough. It’s place where local students can gather after school and on weekends to collaborate with peers on various types projects in assorted mediums, while utilizing the facility’s state-of-the-art equipment. “If you’re a member, this is your playground. You can use everything we have to offer. Parents love that this is a space where there kids can be dropped off and feel safe to explore and experiment with different educational technology and make friends in the process.” According to Patrick, as well as entertainment value, the academy is a space where kids can receive assistance with homework assignments, training in gaming, eSports, music performance, mathematics, digital engineering and STEM learning courses. Patrick said his time working with students helped him conceive the idea for this modern community center, but it was when he began observing the opportunities – or lack thereof – available to his own children that he felt an urgency to bring the vision to life. “My career path has allowed me work with kids and I don’t think it’s any surprise that a lot of them feel alone. They feel caged up. They’re dealing with a lot of different things in their lives with no outlet to express that,” said Patrick. “There needs to be a peer group and a place where that group can share common interests. We offer that, and a staff that is going to take them around, keep them engaged and educate them.” “My 9-year-old has grown up with a touch screen in his hands. My 4-year-old has some trouble making friends because he’s been exposed to so much at an early age, in terms of technology, that it’s hard for him to find common ground,” Patrick said. “The dynamic of today’s culture and kids is not what it was like when we were growing up, but the emotional needs haven’t changed. And unless it was sports or video games or their phones, my kids had no place to turn for that social interaction.” “Our version of the makerspace is one that focuses on community and collaboration. We want kids to come here and not only share ideas, but learn how to develop those ideas together. This is our version of the modern community center,” said Patrick. The STEM Music Academy is located at 30 Monmouth St. in Red Bank, in the former Monmouth Music store. With a background in educational technology investment and partnership strategy, and a music industry career that allowed him to share the stage with local Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Debbie Harry and Blondie from 2003-2007, Patrick had an epiphany last year while teaching private music lessons in Rumson. “These kids are coming in and they’re not learning as much as they can because a lot of the lesson is them opening up and talking to me about their lives. They’re telling their parents it’s the best lesson they ever had, when really it’s therapy,” Patrick explained during a Nov. 29 interview with The Two River Times. “These kids don’t need to learn music or how to work with technology. It’s more important that they establish friendships. But music and technology can be a great facilitator of that.” The academy is currently running two special enrollment offers, including a three-month membership for $399 and a one-month registration for $150. But for Patrick, the space is an opportunity to provide a resource for the Two River-area youth that is more impactful than a piece of technology ever could be. The academy also offers additional music industry courses, like DJ lessons, songwriting workshops, ensemble development and musicology, as well as virtual reality experiences like problem solving on the space shuttle, and Friday evening teen nights with music, dancing and gaming. Located in the former Monmouth Music storefront, Patrick officially opened the doors to the academy Nov. 1 and said enrollment has increased over the past five weeks as more students and parents have experienced this intersection of educational technology, art and collaborative spirit in a semi-structured setting.last_img read more
