About Center for Housing and New Community Economics (CHANCE)
The Center for Housing and New Community Economics (CHANCE), a non-profit organization, was established in 1993 as a national, information and technical assistance center on home ownership and control to help individuals with developmental disabilities overcome potential barriers to home ownership. Founded by the U.S. Administration on Developmental Disabilities through a cooperative agreement with the Institute on Disability at the University of New Hampshire, the alliance is dedicated to creating public and private sector partnerships that will link the home mortgage and social service industries to better serve people with disabilities. The alliance has a variety of materials including brochures, pamphlets, reports, videos, training materials, information packets, and a regular newsletter.
