Community Impact

Building America has financed real estate projects that will help catalyze the revitalization and stabilization of the low-income communities in which they are located. These developments will generate significant benefits for the surrounding communities including employment opportunities and community resources for local residents; improved access to quality consumer goods and services; and affordable housing opportunities for low-income individuals.

Building America has selected projects that have extensive stakeholder involvement in the development process, that serve as catalysts for future economic growth, and that are developed by anchor institutions that have both a community mission and a commitment to the residents in the communities in which they are located. These partnerships will provide both development benefits and ensure long-term job opportunities for the local residents in their communities.
