Emerging Developers Program

Advancing Equity in Affordable Housing

Century Housing Corporation proudly extends financial support to minority and female affordable housing developers through the Emerging Developers Program. This program underscores Century’s unwavering commitment to fostering racial and social equity in the housing sector for developers who often encounter disproportionate barriers when seeking financing.

The Emerging Developers Program operates through a special purpose credit program, funded by a dedicated $15 million credit facility from JPMorgan Chase Bank and a $10 million Racial Equity Bond issued to U.S. Bank.
