Community Housing Partners, a member of the NeighborWorks network, is receiving $556,500 in flexible grants from the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation, also known as NeighborWorks America. This grant will support its affordable housing and community development activities.
“CHP is pleased to again be awarded funds from NeighborWorks America to support our critical affordable housing programs,” said Jeffrey Reed, President of CHP. “Through NeighborWorks funding, CHP can continue to invest in the acquisition, development and rehabilitation of much needed additional affordable housing while remaining flexible enough to meet the evolving needs at our existing communities.”
NeighborWorks America is announcing $70 million in grants to its network of nearly 250 nonprofit organizations located around the country. NeighborWorks organizations will use the grants to develop and manage high-quality affordable housing, help consumers set and reach their goals through financial coaching, offer homeownership education and counseling, and revitalize and strengthen communities.
“NeighborWorks America is dedicated to securing that these grants create opportunities for people to improve their lives and strengthen their communities,” said NeighborWorks America President and CEO Marietta Rodriguez.
In fiscal year 2018, the NeighborWorks network provided 457,000 housing and counseling services; owned and managed 166,900 rental homes; and created more than 41,100 jobs. The NeighborWorks America website has more information about the national and state-by-state impact of NeighborWorks.
