Housing & Community Development

NCLR Homeownership Network

Helping families since 1997

Since 1997, the NCLR Homeownership Network (NHN) has helped over 590,000 families with their housing counseling needs.

The program advises families in the home-buying process; helps them with their current mortgage; and provides financial, budgeting, and money-management advice.

NHN is approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and consists of more than 50 independent community-based organizations.

Additional programs offered by Housing and Community Development:

• Loan Modification with Principal Reduction: Low- and moderate-income families are provided mortgage delinquency counsel and offered principal reduction through a partnership with a sister organization.

• NCLR Homeownership Network Learning Alliance (NHNLA): A HUD-approved training and certification program for housing counselors. NHNLA courses are developed in collaboration with NHN and housing counseling experts to integrate real-world experience.

• Financial Capability: Provides counseling and education to empower individuals to make informed choices, avoid pitfalls, know where to go for help, and improve their financial well-being.

• Creation of Affordable Single-Family Housing: Low- and moderate-income families have access to an affordable home purchase opportunity through a program with sister organizations to acquire foreclosed homes and convert them into affordable homeownership units.
