HOME - Community


Spotlight on community-based strategies that address the systemic barriers and advance Latino homeownership.

The Home Ownership Means Equity (HOME) initiative is dedicated to transforming the economic trajectory of Latinos by advancing systemic change to enable the creation of 4 million new Hispanic homeowners by 2030. To advance this goal, UnidosUS is investing in and supporting UnidosUS Affiliates and other community-based organizations that are implementing innovative approaches to expanding homeownership opportunities in their communities.

HOMEownership Solutions Network

UnidosUS invested in nine organizations in five markets representing the first cohort of the HOMEownership Solutions Network.  These organizations were selected based on their expertise and commitment to expanding Latino homeownership in their communities.  UnidosUS made 19 additional grants to members of the Housing and Financial Empowerment Network to expand access to pre-purchase homeownership counseling.

What is Premio HOME?

Premio HOME is a national competition designed to elevate and expand innovative approaches to address the shortage of affordable homes for purchase in the U.S. While homeownership remains the primary gateway for building generational wealth, in many communities, consumers face an acute shortage of affordable starter homes.

This is a critical barrier to closing the racial and ethnic homeownership gap. Premio HOME seeks to identify and spotlight community-based practices that are addressing this housing supply challenge.

Premio HOME is an opportunity to recognize existing innovative and scalable approaches that are underway to address the critical shortage of houses needed to close our nation’s homeownership gap.

Happy family in new home.
