  • Provides funding we leverage to attract additional resources including 15 residential down payment assistance loans worth more than $340,000 to our neighbors below 80% of the median income. NeighborWorks has also provided more than $1 million in assistance to help our nonprofit agency grow and literally help keep a roof over some families’ heads.
  • Facilitates our work through training, technical assistance and peer-to-peer networking opportunities.
