Rent and Mortgage
To better serve you, NAM is now processing Rent and Mortgage Assistance applications online. Each week, we will issue Rent and Mortgage appointments by random selection. There is no longer any need to come to NAM and wait in line. Please do not visit NAM for rental assistance without receiving an appointment confirmation, as we will be unable to serve you.
Para brindar un mejor servicio, NAM está procesando las aplicaciones de asistencia online. Cada semana, daremos citas de asistencia solamente por selección aleatoria. Ya no hay necesidad de venir a NAM y esperar en la cola. No visite NAM para asistencia sin recibir una confirmación de la cita, ya que no podremos atenderlo.
