Enterprise Community Loan Fund Sustainability Bond Framework

As one of the largest nonprofit community development financial institutions in the country, Enterprise Community Loan Fund (ECLF) delivers high-impact capital to the people and places that need it most.

Partnering with community groups and investors, we combine financial discipline, deep expertise and highly-collaborative partnerships to build and preserve homes people can afford, and develop other essential neighborhood resources, including schools, federally qualified health centers, stores with healthy food options and more.

ECLF’s framework is based on the four components of the International Capital Market Association’s Green Bond Principles, Social Bond Principles and the Sustainability Bond Guidelines updated as of June 2021:

1) Use of Proceeds exclusively to finance or refinance eligible Green and/or Social Projects; 
2) Process for Project Evaluation and Selection; 
3) Management of Proceeds; and 
4) Reporting.
