WRAG Announces Our Region, Your Investment

Thursday, January 7, 2016
More than 150,000 families in the Greater Washington region are currently in need of affordable homes, a number that is expected to double in less than 10 years. When people spend too much on housing, they are less likely to be able to cover basic needs like paying for utilities or health care. That instability can lead to negative health outcomes for residents, poor educational outcomes for their children, and an increased risk of homelessness.
 
In order to create and preserve the affordable homes needed over the next decade, the region needs additional resources. Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers (WRAG) has teamed up with Enterprise Community Loan Fund to develop Our Region, Your Investment to bring a new form of capital to support affordable housing in the region.
