In 2016, Enterprise Community Loan Fund worked with the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers to launch Our Region, Your Investment—an impact investing initiative designed to address the housing affordability crisis in the Washington, D.C. region. In less than two years’ time, they have successfully raised more than $12 million from a wide range of local investors, fully deployed and reinvested those funds and analyzed their impact. Nearly 500 affordable homes have been preserved throughout the region because of the collective investment of community members, local foundations, and businesses.
