Enterprise Community Investment (“ECI”) is a national leader in providing investment capital and development services for affordable housing and community revitalization. ECI operates as part of the Enterprise family of companies, which includes Enterprise Community Partners, Inc., a national Section 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Enterprise’s mission is to create opportunity for low- and moderate-income people through affordable housing in diverse, thriving communities. At Enterprise, we believe opportunity begins when people have a place to call home. We are driven by our mission, fueled by business discipline and sustained by donors and investors. Since 1982, Enterprise has worked with partners in communities nationwide. As one of America’s original social enterprises, we bring together the people and resources to create affordable housing and to revitalize neighborhoods.
ECI finances, develops and acquires housing and provides other community development initiatives in underserved neighborhoods throughout the U.S. ECI’s primary business is syndicating low-income tax credits. Our investment and lending products include low-income housing tax credits, historic tax credits and long-term permanent mortgages on multifamily and commercial properties. Permanent mortgages are provided through Bellwether Enterprise, our mortgage subsidiary. ECI develops affordable rental and for-sale housing, through its subsidiary Enterprise Homes. Asset management is offered by Enterprise Community Asset Management, Inc. Since its founding, Enterprise has invested $43.6 billion in housing and community revitalization, helped create nearly 585,000 homes and we have touched millions of lives. In fact, every day someone moves into a better place to live thanks to Enterprise. However, today ECI’s mission is more critical than ever. The U.S. is in the midst of a housing crisis that affects nearly 19 million low-income families. Our goal is to end housing insecurity for all.
