Four out of five homeowners who had their mortgages modified under the Home Affordable Modification Program have kept their mortgages current, according to a Treasury Department report. HAMP is part of the Obama Administration’s Making Home Affordable initiative.

For example, of HAMP-modified mortgages from early 2010, 81.6% are still performing, compared to only 65.8% of modifications made privately.
