It is the Monitor's thirteenth report since the April 11, 2016 settlement.
According to Professor Green, in the 19 weeks covered by the most recent report, through December 18, 2019 Goldman Sachs forgave the balances due on 792 first lien mortgages, representing total principal forgiveness of $78,946,811 and an average first lien principal forgiveness of $99,680. Total reportable credits amounted to $78,830,630 after the application of appropriate crediting calculations and multipliers. The modified mortgages are spread across 42 states and the District of Columbia, with 48% of the credit located in the three settling states and 49% of the credit in Hardest Hit Areas (census tracts identified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as containing large concentrations of distressed properties and foreclosure activities).

Goldman Sachs also forgave amounts due on unsecured debt and loans secured by liens junior to second liens on 68 loans for a total forgiveness of $6,249,331, an average of $91,902, and a total reportable credit of $2,482,058 after the application of appropriate crediting calculations and multipliers. The loans are located in 15 states, with 40% of the associated credit in the three Settling States and 68% of the credit in Hardest Hit Areas.
The consumer relief provided in the most recent period brings the total relief provided by Goldman Sachs to $1,547,327,585 the Monitor said in the report.
"Thus, some three years and ten months after the Settlement Agreements were signed, Goldman Sachs appears to be approximately 86% toward completing its Consumer Relief obligations," Professor Green said in the report, which again noted data suggesting Goldman Sachs has now exceeded the minimum amount of credit that must be earned in each of the three settling states of California, Illinois, and New York.
Goldman Sachs' two settlement agreements resolved potential claims regarding the marketing, structuring, arrangement, underwriting, issuance and sale of mortgage-based securities. Besides the Department of Justice, California, Illinois and New York, Goldman Sachs reached settlements with the National Credit Union Administration Board and the Federal Home Loan Banks of Chicago and Des Moines. Under the settlements, Goldman Sachs agreed to provide a total of $5.06 billion, including consumer-relief valued at $1.8 billion to be distributed by the end of January 2021.
