BETHESDA, MD — Walk- er &Dunlop, Inc. announced that it structured $55.68 mil - lion in financing for three skilled nursing facilities in the Chicago, Illinois area: Chalet Living & Rehab Center, The Grove of Evanston, and The Grove of La Grange Park. Senior managing director Joshua Rosen led the origi - nation team at Walker & Dunlop in securing significant debt coverage savings for the property owner and long- time client. The team utilized their deep understanding of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) loan programs to ap - ply the Section 232/223(a)(7) Refinance option to each prop - erty’s existing HUD loans. The permanent loans also feature terms of 27 years and attrac - tive fixed rates. “This three-pack transac - tion is an excellent example of Walker & Dunlop’s ability to provide new opportunities for skilled nursing facilities amid a global pandemic,” said Rosen. “Our team’s substan -


growth. The flexibility of the Standby Guaranty Facility enables Enterprise to provide guarantees at the developer, project, or fund level. The remaining $10 million from Schusterman will provide growth capital and advisory services designed to support BIPOC developers as they grow their operations and real estate portfolios and create impact in their communities. “For centuries, Black entre - preneurs have lacked access to the capital we all need to be able to start and build business - es, and even when that capital was available, it was frequently overpriced. We are pleased to support Enterprise Commu - nity Partners’ national effort to provide financing to developers of color so they can build their businesses while creating more affordable housing for the many families in need,” said Stacy Schusterman , chair, Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Philanthropies. “We believe that through efforts to develop new community development finance models, all developers can be afforded equitable access to capital and the nation’s sup - ply of affordable housing can expand in the process.” ”We are excited about the opportunity to support Enter - prise’s Equitable Path For - ward. CIGP’s intent is to enable intermediaries to ap - proach community financing more innovatively and equi - tably,” said Sarah Stremlau , president of LOCUS Impact Investing , which manages CIGP. “Through this proj - ect, we hope Enterprise and the other standby guarantee

facility’s investors will help BIPOC and other historically marginalized developers build wealth and gain access to the development opportunities they justly deserve.” “For too long, developers of color – despite credibility and community knowledge -- have been unable to access the kind of capital that helps them grow their businesses and invest in their neighborhoods. Equitable Path Forward, and specifically the Standby Guaranty Facility, allows Enterprise to address the speed bumps they may face working with traditional lenders and investors,” said Priscilla Almodovar , presi - dent and chief executive officer, Enterprise. “With partners like Schusterman and the Com - munity Investment Guaran - tee Pool, we are beginning to change the finance system to advance racial equity.” Equitable Path Forward Equitable Path Forward is a five-year, $3.5 billion nation - wide initiative to help disman - tle the deeply-rooted legacy of racism in housing – from the types of homes that are built, where they’re built, who builds them, and the wealth that is generated from them. The mul - tipronged initiative establishes an equitable path forward for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color and other historically marginalized housing provid - ers by filling the gaping capital gap from decades of systemic racism, strengthening provid - ers through advisory services and other nonfinancial support and creating new career path - ways to diversify leadership in real estate.
