MAREJ NEW YORK, NY — Enter- prise Community Partners announces that its affiliate Enterprise Community In- vestment (Enterprise) has launched the Renter Wealth Creation Fund, a first-of-its- kind innovation designed to provide renters the wealth building opportunities tradi- tionally limited to homeown- ers while preserving up to $1 billion in affordable and workforce homes. Backed by Enterprise’s national afford- able housing platform, the fund, which has set a goal to raise $250 million from investors, offers a return for investors and upward mobil- ity for renters, who earn both immediate cash back for on- time rent payments and the opportunity to share in the appreciation of the property over the long term. Enterprise expects the fund to preserve 7,000 homes. “The Renter Wealth Cre- ation Fund is a direct response to what renters have told us they want: more cash in hand

solely as monetary endeavors. That being said, when develop- ers build in a community, the project has a tangible effect on the existing community dynamic and, at Reynolds, we make it our priority to ensure that the effect is a positive one. To be trusted with a develop- ment project is to be trusted with the community’s better- ment, a responsibility we feel lucky to take on. While build - ing new townhomes or office spaces, why not build up the community through economic development or charitable initiatives? The success of a project is inextricably linked to the health of the commu- nity, and by contributing to the well-being of both, we can set a trajectory destined for economic vitality.

to find out where assistance is needed past the building process. A check donation to a local nonprofit, a partnership with a community organiza- tion or a special dedication to the history of the property are all ways in which we’ve seen our colleagues exemplify their dedication to the local commu- nity. In the long term, innovate ways to have an annual impact. If the local food pantry often runs low, consider hosting a yearly food drive. If the prop- erty is near a local hospital, fundraise for charity events like Relay for Life or walks for specific illnesses. If you’re passionate about fueling the success of future generations, an annual scholarship given to a high school student in a specific subject area could go a long way in encouraging future professional development.

today, and the opportunity to achieve upward mobility over the long term,” said Lori Chatman , president of Enter- prise’s Capital division. “With their feedback, we created a financial innovation that offers returns to investors, loyalty and stability to prop- erty owners and—for the first time—real wealth-building potential for renters.” (Chat- man will assume the role of interim co-CEO of Enterprise beginning in November.) Informed by residents, the Renter Wealth Creation Fund provides critical benefits to residents of affordable rental housing developments in which it invests: 1. Cash Back: Every month, residents who make on-time rent payments receive cash back through Stake, a mobile app that allows the seamless transfer and use of these reim- bursements. 2. Resident Services: Each property will offer services tailored to the needs of the residents.

3. Shared Appreciation: Like homeowners cashing out from a sale, long-term residents— current and former—can re- ceive a share of the profits if the property is refinanced or sold for a profit. When this occurs, investors receive a tar- geted financial return of 4%, and residents who lived in the building for at least four years are expected to receive 80% of the financial upside thereafter as an additional cash-back reward. Homeownership has his - torically been the gateway to upward mobility for most Americans, and the average homeowner today has 40 times the wealth of a renter. But systemic inequities have kept homeownership out of reach for many low-income families, and particularly for people of color impacted by discrimina- tory housing policies. More than half of Black and Latino households are renters. The Renter Wealth Creation Fund rebalances the dynamic with a commonsense solution. MAREJ
