What's New at Community Action

Homeownership Counseling

 

 

Effective January 2014 important changes to consumer loans took place.  The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection issued instructions for lenders requiring homeownership counseling under the Frank-Dodd Act relating to federal loan applicants.  Community Action of Northwest Alabama has been a HUD approved Housing Counseling agency since 2000.  We currently employ 4 certified, and HUD approved, Housing Counseling staff serving Lauderdale, Colbert and Franklin Counties.
