We are accepting new applications by phone Monday-Thursday from 9 - 11:30 a.m. or 1:30 - 4 p.m. by calling 877-953-4250 (no Friday intake). You can also apply online anytime by clicking the link below. We ask you to understand that response times may be delayed.

FRAUD ALERT: NPLS services are free; we do not charge any fees or expenses to our clients. If you are contacted by email, mail or phone by anyone claiming to be from NPLS asking for a “retainer fee” or any other fee or bill, please ignore it and let us know.
