NeighborWorks® Anchorage is dedicated to improving the quality of life for families and individuals by preserving homes, creating new housing opportunities and strengthening neighborhoods.
NeighborWorks® Anchorage has a history of fostering change, beginning with the revitalization of the Spenard community. NeighborWorks® Anchorage worked with local and state government, as well as residents and business owners in the neighborhood, to formulate a plan to upgrade the community. This effort resulted in road and pedestrian improvements, coupled with small business and home improvement lending, which support the neighborhood.
Affordable Rental Housing
NeighborWorks® Anchorage is dedicated to providing quality, safe, and clean affordable apartment homes in convenient locations all over Anchorage. From well appointed three-bedroom units to practical efficiencies, we have an apartment that is ideal for any lifestyle. All our apartment communities are professionally managed and are located near schools, bus lines, and shopping. Many of our properties are also located close to major employment centers, including downtown, midtown, and southeast business districts.
Home Ownership / Rehabilitation
Home ownership remains at the heart of most Americans, and that dream is alive and well in Anchorage. NeighborWorks® Anchorage offers home buyer education and an array of affordable loan programs designed to assist home buyers with purchasing a home. Experienced staff assist potential new homeowners with the lending process and help determine how our loan products may best fit their needs. We offer down payment and closing cost assistance loans, first mortgages and partner with a number of local lenders. All loan programs are subject to income limits and other borrower eligibility requirements.
Even the best built home will, at some point, need to undergo repairs or major replacements. Often the cost of replacing a roof or heating system will be a major expense. NeighborWorks® Anchorage can support current homeowners by maintaining the health, safety and value of their homes through our repair and rehabilitation programs.
Community Engagement and Resident Services
NeighborWorks® Anchorage believes that collaboration is the most powerful way to achieve our goal to build community through neighborhoods. By working together, sharing skills and knowledge, and pooling our resources, we can meet the needs of our community. We share a common vision with many partners of a strong, vibrant and sustainable community where everyone has a place to call home.
NeighborWorks® Anchorage believes that all residents should have opportunities for civic engagement, leadership development and connections to the wider community. We empower people to make a positive difference in our neighborhoods and our city. We bring people together and focus on what makes a community a positive place to live. We teach people how to work with a diversity of opinions and backgrounds, and build strong, vibrant, and sustainable neighborhoods.
