As NLP expands its lending program into Georgia, NLP will work with local, state, regional and national entities to bring affordable housing and economic benefit to the underserved population. NLP anticipates that within the first two years of the program expansion, an additional 240 individuals will be impacted by our expanded programs. NLP anticipates providing 150 units of affordable housing in Georgia, which will benefit individuals and families that rely on affordable housing for financial security. Each subsequent year of the program, NLP anticipates providing additional housing units with increased awareness of its expanded geography. NLP will strive to finance a minimum of 500 units per year beginning with its third full year operating in Georgia.
