Wondering if you're eligible for refinancing or loan modification under the Obama administration's "Making Home Affordable" program? The federal government has launched a new site that's supposed to help you find out.

At makinghomeaffordable.gov, you can take the eligibility test (including instructions on how to find out if your loan is owned or guaranteed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac). Also there: a "payment reduction estimator," warnings about foreclosure rescue scams, a list of homeowner help events (there's one in Howard County April 18) and similar resources.
