A Message From Our Leadership
2016 marked another pivotal year for Enterprise and our partners. It was a year of tremendous progress: billions of dollars in capital invested in our communities; key policy changes at the federal, state and locals levels; innovative programmatic solutions on the ground. It was also a year of change, with one chapter closing in Washington, making way for a new era.
Working with our partners, Enterprise invested $6 billion last year – the most in our history – towards providing well-designed, affordable homes and other critical community assets. This investment led to the creation or preservation of over 24,000 affordable homes, 28,000 workforce homes and 18 million square feet of commercial and community space – as well as 43,000 jobs that were created as a result.
We built on our track record of integrated, cross-sector partnerships, which reached a new evolution in the form of the Strong, Prosperous and Resilient Communities Challenge (SPARCC). SPARCC, which challenges cities to ensure that new transit and infrastructure investments lead to equitable and healthy opportunities for everyone, reflects our guiding belief: that our communities’ challenges – from health to housing to education – are interconnected, so our solutions must be, too. We believe SPARCC represents a partnership model of the future.
On Capitol Hill and in city halls across the country, Enterprise helped advance transformative policy changes. On the national level, we advocated for key federal affordable housing legislation and released a bold national policy platform. Our efforts on the state and local levels were similarly effective, such as in Denver, where we co-led an advocacy campaign to create the city’s first permanent fund dedicated to affordable housing, which will lead to 6,000 more affordable homes in the booming region.
As always, however, the numbers only tell part of the story. We invite you to read the profiles in our annual report, which show you how our work is directly impacting lives. Learn about how Marcela Vega and her adopted grandchildren feel safer and happier than ever in their home at Nuestra Senora in Guadalupe. Or read about how in San Francisco, at the LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, Scott Blanks empowers visually impaired people to live independently and thrive.
We’re immensely proud of what we achieved last year, but we know that right now our mission is more critical than ever. A new political environment means new uncertainties and new challenges. Meanwhile, the housing affordability crisis continues to grow as wages continue to stagnate, and too many people remain disconnected from opportunity.
Enterprise is committed to meeting these challenges, both through new solutions and those that we already know work. We will continue to fight for policies that are proven, to drive impact capital into communities and to create bold and innovative programs with the potential to match the scale of the challenges. We will work with our national network of partners for integrated, cross-sector efforts, informed by data and accelerated by new platforms and technologies. We will lift resident voices so that they are central in shaping their communities’ futures.
None of this would be possible without you. Thank you, as always, for your support and partnership. It is more important than ever.
