NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — The State of Tennessee is stepping up to help homeowners faced with possible foreclosure.

The state attorney general's office is recommending homeowners in trouble call the Tennessee's Mortgage Assistance Hotline to get reliable information and referrals to free foreclosure prevention counseling.
