In 2009, NEI was certified by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a National Housing Counseling Intermediary.
Homeownership is a key wealth creator in America. Yet, families in communities across the country face a variety of barriers to owning a home, such as fear of the purchasing process, credit history problems, and predatory lending. By providing housing counseling, your organization can help families overcome these barriers and purchase a home of their own.
Our affiliates help families understand the home purchasing process, money management and credit, how to avoid predatory lending, and they encourage lenders and other housing organizations to make homeownership possible for people who need lower down payments and more flexible underwriting than permitted by the conventional market.
Since the program’s inception, we have provided housing counseling to over 30,000 families locally and around the country. Our affiliates help individuals avoid becoming victims of predatory lending practices, home foreclosures and rescue scams, and landlord deceitful practices. Check out our latest data!
