The U.S. Department of Justice released a 69-page report Tuesday on a foreclosure intervention method that is becoming increasingly popular across the country – mediation. The paper draws from a March 2011 workshop which was attended by dozens of foreclosure mediation program stakeholders and researchers. A key finding that emerged from the workshop, according to DOJ officials, is that the federal government should take an active role, both in helping to develop program and evaluation guidelines and in providing resources for mediation programs and research.
