NACA held an even in DC over the past few days. The organization helps homeowners who have trouble paying their mortgages work something out - either with the lender, a NACA partner, or even NACA itself. The process seems really responsible - you have to show up with all the paperwork and there are extensive post-transaction assistance programs. This non-profit is doing precisely what some argue the government should do and others argue might be a good idea - but not for the government. This would seem to be best of both worlds.
Here is what I don't get: Funding. NACA has membership dues, but I doubt they are enough to run the whole organization. I can't find information on their site about accepting donations or entering into partnerships. The lack of transparency makes me a little skeptical. Anyone have any insight?
