Updated December 29, 2020

Enterprise cares deeply about our rural and native partners and the communities they serve. As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to unfold, the Rural and Native team is working hand in hand with local and national housing providers, housing agencies, advocates and philanthropy to respond to the crisis and the needs of our rural communities. We will be providing regular updates on resources for residents and housing providers on this page. You can also follow Enterprise’s list of national resources and federal policy response or reach out to our team directly if there is a way that we can support and advocate for the important work you’re doing in this unprecedented time.
