"Our Region, Your Investment": An update on our impact in the region

Thursday, November 16, 2017

Last year, Enterprise Community Loan Fund and WRAG created a local impact investing initiative, Our Region, Your Investment, to protect and produce affordable homes in the Greater Washington region. Today, Enterprise released a report on Clarendon Court, an affordable housing development in Arlington County, VA, which was financed through Our Region, Your Investment.

Gretchen Greiner-Lott, WRAG’s vice president, said, “The Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers is pleased to work with Enterprise Community Loan Fund on the Our Region, Your Investment initiative. Through this initiative, we have brought additional attention to the housing crisis in the greater Washington, D.C., region and raised new capital to address the issue. We know that Clarendon Court and the other projects supported by these investments—from foundations, individuals, nonprofits and businesses—are making a positive difference for individuals, families, neighborhoods and our region as a whole.”
