Who are NeighborWorks Montana and ROC USA, LLC?
NeighborWorks Montana strives to preserve sustainable home-ownership opportunities for low- and moderate-income Montana families, to be a dependable developer of housing options and to deliver home-ownership services to rural areas. NWMT works with local service partners throughout the state to provide home-buyer education, home-ownership planning, foreclosure prevention, one-to-one housing counseling, loans for
down payment and closing costs, due-on-sale loans for “gap financing” and
development of new owner-occupied homes.
We do this by first focusing on communities that are for sale and where homeowners have a strong likelihood of success if they choose to work as a group and buy it. Second, we have assembled local and regional non-profits that we have trained and certified to assist resident corporations through the purchase process and beyond. Third, we have developed a specialized source of financing for resident corporations who wish to buy their communities.
We know that with opportunity, technical support, and financing,
homeowner groups can buy, preserve and improve their communities.
We know because we have helped more than 250 communities do just that.
