NACA (naca.com), is one of the most exciting organizations in the country. NACA is a national non-profit homeownership, HUD-certified housing counseling and community advocacy organization. We are a high-profile organization whose affordable mortgage programs and community advocacy are frequently featured in the national, international and local media. NACA is the largest and most effective housing services organization in the country and is rapidly growing with 40+ offices nationwide and a counseling center in Charlotte. We are hiring many additional staff for existing and new offices nationwide, local organizers, and directors based in the Boston corporate office. NACA is the premier homeownership and advocacy organization that is both respected and feared. As a result of NACA’s large and growing membership nationwide, NACA is now increasingly focused on harnessing its power to demand economic justice for all.
Started in 1988, NACA has a strong track-record of successful advocacy against predatory and discriminatory lenders. NACA’s success is a result of its aggressive, confrontational advocacy. We have taken on campaigns against some of the country’s most powerful companies and individuals and won. NACA has revolutionized mortgage lending with its mortgage programs and advocacy. NACA continues its aggressive advocacy for working people and communities in the fight for economic justice and affordable homeownership for all. In addition to affordable homeownership, this includes taking on issues such as student debt, tax equity, voter access and other economic justice issues.
In addition to its advocacy efforts, NACA has established the national standard for homeownership programs. NACA’s industry-leading programs include:
• Purchase – For homebuyers who will be owner-occupants, the Purchase Program makes the right to affordable homeownership a reality for homebuyers. By basing its mortgage underwriting criteria on homebuyers’ overall circumstances and not on traditional risk-based pricing or credit scores, NACA provides broad access to its best-in-class mortgage –a mortgage with no down payment, no closing costs, no fees, no requirement for perfect credit and always at a below-market, fixed interest rate. NACA has $13 billion in mortgage commitments from the country’s largest lenders to support this program.
• Renovations – For Purchase Program homebuyers whose property is in need of repairs, NACA’s Home and Neighborhood Development (“HAND”) department assists them throughout the repair and renovation process.
• Homeowner Assistance – For Purchase Program homeowners who experience financial difficulties, NACA’s Membership Assistance Program (“MAP”) provides services including mortgage modifications, payment agreements and financial assistance to help avoid foreclosure.
• Home Save – For homeowners with an unaffordable mortgage, NACA is the largest and most effective program in providing affordable solutions to over 250,000 at-risk homeowners nationwide. NACA has been able to restructure unaffordable mortgages by permanently reducing interest rates and reducing outstanding principle balances to achieve affordable mortgage payments.
