Founded Paint The Town™ & Rake Up Boise™
NWB was formed in the Vista Neighborhood in response to an assessment of Boise's deteriorating neighborhoods. We identified needs and created solutions – including Paint The Town™ and Rake Up Boise™ to help low-income seniors and disabled homeowners maintain their homes.
Homebuyer Education & Coaching
NWB developed over 200 affordable rental units and offered resident services, increasing their stability and opportunity for self-sufficiency. Implemented a Homebuyer Education Program and Prepurchase Counseling.
Became certified by U.S. Treasury Department as Idaho's first Community Development Financial Institution. NWB partnered with the City of Boise, IHFA, and U.S.D.A. Rural Development to provide mortgage loan opportunities to underserved Idahoans.
We worked with the National Foreclosure Mitigation Counseling Program to develop a comprehensive foreclosure prevention program.
NWB reactivated our Acquisition and Rehabilitation of Single-Family Homes Program – providing affordable housing with energy-saving improvements to low-to-moderate-income (LMI) homebuyers and renters.
Financial Capability Coaching
We implemented Financial Capability Coaching to help people work toward reducing debt, establishing savings and repairing credit.
NWB added Single Family Development and Homebuilding Programs to provide new, energy-efficient, close-in homes for LMI homebuyers called Pocket Neighborhoods™.
NWB became a NeighborWorks® HomeOwnership Center℠, joining our counseling, education, and lending departments together.
We partnered with Wells Fargo as the hub for the statewide NeighborhoodLIFT® Program
