North East Housing Initiative, Inc., "NEHI", is a non-profit 501(c)(3) community land trust formed in 2014 dedicated to providing permanently affordable shared equity housing in North East Baltimore. It is an outgrowth of St. Anthony's Community Advocacy committee that expanded into a religiously, racially, and economically diverse group of North East Baltimore residents.
NEHI helped to launch and support the city-wide 20/20 campaign to finance permanently affordable housing and has educated state and city legislators about the social and fiscal, benefits and functions of community land trusts.
NEHI's goal is to transform vacant, abandoned, and foreclosed properties into permanently affordable homes for people with an AMI of 80% and below, while providing training and employment opportunities, leadership development, increasing economic self-sufficiency, lifting people out of poverty, thus building a community that is sustainable, inclusive and diverse.
