How we're moving Latino homeownership forward

We are uniquely positioned to achieve our goal by combining our reputation and expertise across programs, policy, community outreach, and national partnerships.

Systems change

By working with policymakers, we will identify solutions that support Latino homeownership. Our policy agenda focuses on improving homebuyer readiness, expanding access to credit, increasing housing supply, preserving homeownership, and increasing Latino representation in housing leadership roles.

Communications strategy

Building and sharing the Latino homeownership story will inspire consumer awareness and behavior as well as recruit allies in the industry, government, and general public. Interest in the impacts of Latino homeownership on the U.S. economy is key to systemic change.

Test and scale solutions
