NeighborWorks America Northeast Region Annual Homeownership Forum

Posted on Oct 3, 2014 in General

Recently, NHS of the Lehigh Valley participated in a 3-day forum in downtown Baltimore with colleagues from across the northeastern region of our country.  We met with non-profit lenders to discuss regulatory issues, policies and procedures, effective ways to reduce delinquency rates, management and reporting updates, sustainability, and more.

Speakers included representatives from NeighborWorks®America, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the HUD Office of Housing Counseling, CounselorMax®, ChangeInSITE, SHOP and others.  The forum was a great opportunity to learn first hand from colleagues and peers about what works and what doesn’t in our individual communities.  The needs, resources, and opportunities of each community differ and therefore programs and initiatives, although based in similarity, differ as well.

Each evening, after sessions were done, we had a chance to act as tourists and explore the Inner Harbor area of Baltimore.  A relaxing way to wrap up the day!
