Those interested can attend an informational workshop. If interested in joining, several requirements must be met before taking advantage of NACA services.

  • Membership in good standing. Members must pay a yearly membership fee. All members of a household must sign the Membership Agreement and Authorization form.
  • Once a home is purchased using NACA assistance, a monthly Neighborhood Stabilization Fund Fee is calculated on the amount of the mortgage.
  • Household members cannot own any other property outside of the NACA assisted home purchased.
  • Members must live in the home as long as they have the mortgage through NACA.
