About Enterprise Community Partners

Enterprise is a proven and powerful nonprofit that improves communities and people’s lives by making well-designed homes affordable and connected to opportunity. As a social enterprise, we bring together the nationwide know-how, policy leadership, partners, donors and investors to multiply the impact of local affordable housing development.

We are excited to lead the Housing Affordability Breakthrough Challenge, made possible by Wells Fargo’s generous support. The opportunity to help elevate and scale new ideas aligns with our values, our track record as an experienced grant and program administrator, and national reach and scale. Over more than 35 years, Enterprise has created 662,000 homes, invested more than $52.9 billion and touched millions of lives.

As administrator of the Housing Affordability Breakthrough Challenge, Enterprise will partner with creative innovators who have the know-how, technical skill and imagination to transform housing affordability ideas into real action on the ground. We will disseminate breakthrough ideas and approaches. And we will engage a wider audience of stakeholders committed to ending housing insecurity.

We may have similar goals in life, but not the same opportunities – and where you live affects the life you can have. By bringing together the right expertise and know-how to make well-designed homes affordable, we make a difference.
