The federal government should adopt a Mortgage and Rent Payment Protection Program (“MRPPP”) where consumers can quickly apply for an unsecured loan for up to three times their monthly mortgage payment amount or three times their monthly rent payment amount. The loan would be interest free and paid back over 60-72 months.
