Bringing Lenders Together

The Community Home Lenders Association (CHLA) is the distinctive voice in Washington for independent mortgage bankers (IMBs).          CHLA is fighting for federal mortgage policies that promote consumer access to mortgage credit and are fair to smaller IMBs.

Benefits of Membership

Having an Impact in Washington

In 2019 CHLA led the fight to preserve FHA and Ginnie Mae's role in our mortgage markets and to protect IMB access to those important programs.

Access to Top Policy Makers

Our DC conferences give members unparalleled one-on-one access to senior federal agency mortgage officials and Members of Congress.

Productive Relationships with like-minded community IMBs

Our member-centric weekly calls and agenda give CHLA Members the chance to discuss challenges and ideas with principals of similar IMB firms nationwide.

Our latest

For 5 years, CHLA has been proposing a comprehensive administrative reform plan for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that protects small lender equitable cash window and securitization access; opposes new GSE charters that allow vertical integration by Wall Street banks; and minimizes transition risk.  Read the latest version of CHLA’s plan.
