Partners and Resources

NWHP partnersNWHP is a truly collaborative team member and partner with many organizations in the community and looks forward to continuing to initiate regional housing Programs and models that will maximize the resources available for such efforts.

These efforts include building strong partnerships with agencies and institutions administering the resources. These partnerships include municipalities, government agencies on the local, state and national level, financial institutions as varied in size as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, to local banks and credit unions.

However, our most important partners are the residents that need and benefit from the Programs that the NWHP implements. NWHP believes these programs will contribute to healthy communities that are economically viable and support and maximize the talents and resources of their residents.
