Neighborhood Nonprofit Housing Corporation was incorporated in Utah in 1996, with a mission to provide quality affordable housing opportunities, enhance and strengthen communities, and provide households with the skills to become self sufficient. To date, Neighborhood Nonprofit has developed over 600 units of affordable housing through a variety of single and multi-family programs. The economic impact of Neighborhood Nonprofit’s work to date is approximately $1.75 B. These programs include the following:
- Mutual Self Help Housing, a single family program that allows very-low and low-income households to become homeowners by participating in the construction of their homes, under the guidance of Neighborhood Nonprofit’s construction supervisors. The average participant’s household income in this program is 50% of the area median income. Over 300 families have become homeowners through this program, and the average household income is just over 50% of the area median income. Neighborhood Nonprofit acts as the land developer for this program, and has developed multiple subdivisions to provide affordable lots for the self help participants.

Services available to clients include budget management, financial counseling, pre- and post-purchase homeownership counseling, down payment assistance, and helping borrowers apply for a mortgage.
