NEIGHBORHOOD LENDING SERVICES

Neighborhood Lending Services (NLS) is the largest nonprofit lender for both home buyers and homeowners in the state of Illinois and one of the largest lending operations in the national NeighborWorks America (http://www.nw.org) network. NLS is a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) organized in 1983 to combat the redlining practices of financial institutions which perpetuated (and continue to perpetuate) the economic inequities in distressed and underserved neighborhoods of yesterday and today. NLS currently lends an estimated $20MM annually to low-to-moderate income borrowers purchasing single family homes (i.e. 1-to-4-unit properties) that are move-in ready or need rehab work or to homeowners funding their home improvements projects. Through its lending operation and public grant administration efforts, with its parent company, Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago, NLS facilitates over $25MM in capital investments annually in target areas on the south and west sides of Chicago. In addition to competitively priced Freddie Mac loan products, portfolio loan products and healthy purchase subsidies, NLS offers home buyers and homeowners technical assistance in the form of Construction Services. Its Construction Services team provides health and safety focused home inspections for all purchases as well as a variety of construction management activities for rehab and home improvement projects, free of charge.

In addressing socioeconomic and racial barriers that contribute to homeownership challenges across LMI demographics, NLS not only provides greater opportunity for LMI borrowers to realize their dreams of owning a home, but also does its part in closing the racial wealth gap and promoting economic resilience for its clients.

NLS is an affiliate of Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago (NHS), a nonprofit community revitalization organization whose mission is to create opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives, and strengthen their neighborhoods.
