Housing Equity

Our initiatives aim to expand homeownership opportunities for Latinos.

Home Ownership Means Equity

By 2040, Latinos will comprise 70% of new homeowners in America, proving to be essential to the future of our nation’s housing market and economy.

Latinos have always believed in the power of homeownership as a hub for stability. A place where gatherings with loved ones take place while also doubling as an investment that will spur generational wealth for their families.

UnidosUS aims to support Latino families in their homeownership journeys by creating pathways for Latino homebuyers to build credit, afford a down payment, and get approved for a sustainable mortgage loan. We are uniquely positioned to achieve this goal by combining our reputation and expertise across programs, policy, community outreach, and national partnerships.

Wells Fargo is an anchor funder and champion of the UnidosUS housing initiative.
