``The settlement focuses primarily on helping distressed borrowers still in their homes. At least $17 billion of the $25 billion in relief advertised is earmarked for principal reductions and loan modifications. Three billion dollars is for refinancing "underwater" homeowners. Only $1.5 billion will go to homeowners hurt by a foreclosure finalized between Jan. 1, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2011.''
