Credit scores can drop after getting loan help.
Personally, I don't think there is anything wrong with lowering credit scores. In essence, these people receiving government assistance were unable to repay the amount they borrowed. It doesn't matter that their home is now worth less than they thought, they have proved unable to keep their financial commitments. That is exactly what credit bureaus are trying to track, how responsible borrowers are and how likely they are to meet their financial obligations.
