Neighborhood Reinvestment Appropriation

Established by Congress in 1978, Neighborhood Reinvestment (dba NeighborWorks® America) is the original bridge between communities and the public and private sector. NWA accomplishes this through partnership agreements with on-the-ground, nonprofit housing providers across the country: "NeighborWorks®" organizations.

NeighborWorks® organizations operate in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico; in America's urban, suburban and rural communities. Today, over 100 of the NeighborWorks© organizations serve rural communities.

NeighborWorks® organizations offer a range of housing assistance based on individual community needs, from homeownership counseling and lending products to affordable multifamily properties that are assets to the community.

NeighborWorks® America receives an annual appropriation from Congress as an independent agency: in FY 2017, NWA received $140 million for its "core" appropriation. 

For FY 2018, President Trump has proposed to eliminate NWA and his budget requests $27 mm for wind-down purposes.
