The properties are located throughout the State in 28 counties and provide family housing, housing for large families, senior citizens, farm workers and individuals with special needs. All have set aside requirements for low income residents. NLP provides numerous governmental agencies various levels of loan and/or grant administration, assisting them in providing services and subsidy funds that serve low income targeted populations.
NLP offers products, services and programs that were created to incentivize the private sector to invest in affordable housing and community revitalization. NLP is actively engaged with local governments and housing authorities, providing use of NLP's underwriting models that allow for the recapture of the dwindling supply of public subsidy to the greatest degree possible. By combining local SHIP, HOME, CDBG and NSP funds with NLP resources, local governments are able to enhance and multiply the utilization of their funds; achieve maximum leveraging of their funds and produce a greater level of community impact and assistance.
