State officials are taking steps to help prevent foreclosures in Indiana.
Attorney General Greg Zoeller, state Appeals Court Judge Melissa May and state Rep. Jeb Bardon of Indianapolis will hold a news conference Wednesday to discuss their efforts.
Part of their initiative will focus on recruiting pro-bono attorneys to provide free legal advice to distressed borrowers.
Foreclosure listing service RealtyTrac Inc. said last week that more than 1.5 million American households were threatened with losing their homes in the first six months of this year.
Indiana's foreclosure rate ranked 13th in the nation. Nevada was first.
