CNE is a nonprofit dedicated to Building a Better Chattanooga. We guide you through the process of buying, fixing and keeping your home.


Why CNE?

CNE can help you make sense of the home-buying process. We provide answers to:

  • Can I qualify to buy a house?
  • How much house can I afford?
  • How much money will I need?
  • What if I have credit problems?



For nearly a quarter of a century, CNE has been a vital partner with Chattanooga, improving lives, strengthening communities and improving the quality of life in our city.

Since our founding, CNE has helped over 3,900 individuals and families purchase homes. We have also provided home improvement loans and technical assistance with home repairs to over 3,800 homeowners.
