CiTTA is excited to have been selected to help NeighborWorks America with Phase 2 of their ambitious Sustainable Homeownership Project. We will help NeighborWorks Network’s organizations (NWOs) build, test and refine social enterprise business models for their homeownership service lines, to help these NWOs achieve significantly greater scale in service delivery while attaining financial self-sufficiency through earned income revenue streams. This Phase 2 focuses on piloting these business models within 27 selected NWOs, with the eventual goal of rolling out the tested, sustainable models across 235+ NWOs nationwide.
CiTTA Partnership has formed a team of 3 experienced consultants, led by Belinda Li, Founder & Chief Consultant of CiTTA, in engaging in this year-long project.
NeighborWorks America (NWA) is a national non-profit organization created by Congress in 1978 to provide financial support, technical assistance, and training for community-based revitalization efforts. It is charged to revitalize neighborhoods by mobilizing public, private, and community resources at the neighborhood level. NWA founded the NeighborWorks Network, a national network of more than 235 independent, community-based non-profit organizations working to revitalize more than 2,700 urban, suburban, and rural communities through the work of thousands of residents, business people, government officials and other partners. These organizations are providing valuable homeownership services, from homebuyer education and counseling, to lending and realty services, in order to help residents achieve long-term, sustainable, and affordable homeownership, a critical factor in building stable and thriving neighborhoods.
