The Community Home Lenders Association (CHLA) is a national nonprofit association of community-based mortgage lenders, whose mission is to promote federal housing policies that increase affordable mortgage loan options for homeowners and borrowers, and that foster a diverse and competitive mortgage industry that serves all borrowers and areas.

 

As Congress debates mortgage reform, and federal agencies implement new mortgage rules, CHLA believes that policy makers should adopt policies that encourage a re-localization of mortgage lending and a broad market of mortgage loan originators, as well as implement rules and regulations that treat all mortgage originators fairly, regardless of size or financial structure.
