When President Moore took the podium Tuesday, November 16th outside the Georgia Department of Community Affairs with over 300 tenants in crisis, she reiterated, “Let’s start with the first word “Emergency! Emergency! Emergency! It’s an act of something urgent, it’s something that has to happen now and you’re asking for Emergency Rental Assistance!” “It was an honor to stand united with hundreds of NACA Member tenants in need of Emergency Rental Assistance as part of NACA’s Tenants Rising campaign, to hold the Georgia Department of Community Affairs accountable. I look forward to working with NACA as Mayor of Atlanta to achieve affordable homeownership on a large scale and address the racial wealth disparity gap,” added President Moore.
“I am confident”, states Bruce Marks NACA’s CEO, “that with NACA support, City Council President Felicia Moore will become mayor.

Additionally, NACA’s reputation in fighting for and providing affordable homeownership will be instrumental for Mayor Moore in making affordable housing a reality in Atlanta

NACA has been at the forefront in the fight for affordable homeownership since the 1980’s when NACA launched campaigns against predatory lenders and coined the term “Predatory Lending.” Over the years, NACA has grown significantly across the United States by creating affordable homeownership opportunities for low and low to moderate income and minority homebuyers. NACA has been the forefront in fighting predatory lending and during the mortgage crisis was the most effective organization in providing affordable solutions to over 250,000 homeowners. NACA has since become the nation’s largest HUD approved non-profit home ownership and community advocacy organization providing services nationwide through its 48 offices and call center. NACA provides the Best Mortgage in America with $20 billion with the following incredible terms: no down payment, no closing cost, no fees at a below market fixed rate (2.0% 30 yr. fixed or 1.375% 15 yr. fixed as of 11/19/21). NACA’s founder and CEO Bruce Marks was named Bostonian of the Year for 2007 because of his work in getting the major lenders and servicers to modify home loans. He has also testified before Congress on numerous occasions including September 12, 2000 being one of the few to sound the alarm of the pending mortgage crisis.
