Thought Leadership; Whitepapers, Webinars, & Infographics
Acting as thought leadership on reducing barriers for LMI borrowers:HCA is advancing affordable homeownership through promoting solutions and connecting practitioners with resources and each other. In 2019, we will be producing several white papers on homeownership, to curate and distill the latest learnings around challenges and opportunities in affordable homeownership, with a focus on making our information accessible and actionable. Each whitepaper will be accompanied by info-graphics and a national webinars that make sharing the information easier in today’s fast moving world. Support for this work is needed and appreciated, and funders will also receive webinar presentations for their staff by request; which is a great way to inspire more CRA originations.

We all win when we build a strong middle class in America, and homeownership is the singles greatest source of the assets that underpin that stability. It’s critical that we have a shared understanding in this country of who is underserved in access to homeownership, how and why it occurs, and what we can do to ensure that everyone has equitable access to homeownership opportunities.
