The Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), which was supposed to expire June 10, will be extended for another year, the Federal Housing Finance Agency said in a statement.

Since HARP began last April, it has refinanced 190,180 mortgages. It is administered by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and aimed at borrowers with little or no equity in their homes.

This program is a sister to Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP), which was severely criticized by Congress last week for failing to help enough struggling home owners.
