â€œOne of the saddest consequences of the recession has been the foreclosure crisis, which continues to affect the entire Orange County community,â€ said Rep. Sanchez. â€œThe California Housing Financing Agency needs to hear how badly weâ€™re hurting before it decides how to distribute millions in federal funding. I hope this letter will get Orange County families their fair share.â€
