The Community Home Lenders Association is the leading voice and advocate for small and midsized independent mortgage bankers (IMBs), and the only national association that exclusively represents non-bank mortgage bankers. CHLA educates Congress and agencies on how community-based IMBs are leading the way in providing affordable mortgage loans, particularly for first-time homebuyers, as many banks have exited the market after the 2008 Housing Crisis.
