2015 • 2 years • Impact Investments

The vision of Enterprise Community Partners is for every person to one day have an affordable home in a vibrant community, a mission it has pursued for more than 30 years, raising nearly $16 billion to help build or preserve 320,000 affordable homes and create more than half a million jobs nationwide. Enterprise Community Partners, in partnership with Folio Investing, will launch an online community investment marketplace, enabling individual and institutional impact investors to easily find and provide capital to mission-driven financial intermediaries known as Community Development Financial Institutions. By providing a sophisticated and fully functional site for purchasing regulated securities issued by these institutions, this innovative marketplace should efficiently unlock capital from new and more investors, enabling more resources to flow to activities aimed at strengthening low-income and underserved communities across the United States.


2015 • 3 years • Housing

Enterprise Community Partners (Enterprise) is a national intermediary that funds, finances, manages, and builds affordable housing to expand opportunity for low- and moderate-income people in communities across the country. Grant funds support the Make Room campaign to build awareness of the rental affordability crisis in the United States and to integrate Enterprise’s state and local policy initiatives into the effort. The campaign aims to expand the constituency pressing for more affordable rental housing to include networks of individuals in the public, private and philanthropic sectors, who can effect change; it also seeks to to promote greater opportunity, health and well-being for rent-burdened families. To support local partners in addressing rental affordability crises in their communities, Enterprise is providing the tools and strategies needed to make the case for more resources and for policies to increase the availability of affordable rental housing.

This grant supports ECP to develop and launch a seven-year national call-to-action campaign to create and engage a broad-based constituency that will advocate for and raise new resources to help ensure that all families have a home that is affordable and promotes economic opportunity. ECP will staff, manage, and launch the campaign, including developing creative concepts and collateral material.
