NeighborWorks Capital recently closed a $1,400,000 construction line of credit to Fifth Ward Community Redevelopment Corporation to support their new home development activities in Houston, TX. Fifth Ward will use our loan to build new homes, often in partnership with the Houston Land Bank and the Houston Land Trust, to ensure long-term affordability for low and moderate-income buyers. Fifth Ward expects to build and sell 28 homes over the next three years, ramping back up to their historic levels of production.
Our team had the opportunity to spend time with five members of NeighborWorks America serving communities in Boston and Providence. On this trip, we visited Codman Square Neighborhood Development Corporation, Nuestra Comunidad Development Corporation, Madison Park Development Corporation, ONE Neighborhood Builders, and Cambridge Neighborhood Apartment Housing Services. Each of these organizations is doing transformational work to create opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives, and strengthen their communities.
