As President of CHLA, William Giambrone is keeping focus on access to credit for all consumers, specifically mortgage lending. 2015 looks to be a year of an unusual increase in first time home buyers. The more programs available to the communities, the more options people have to choose from. CHLA’s main focus has always been geared towards the local communities.
