Community Capital Management Announces New Impact Initiative For First-Time Homebuyers

Ft. Lauderdale, FL, February 20, 2024: Community Capital Management, LLC (CCM), a leading impact and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing manager, is excited to announce its new impact initiative focused on first-time homebuyers.[1]

“CCM has been investing in affordable homeownership for 25 years, and our new initiative looks to both invest in bonds (1) financing mortgage loans made to low- and moderate-income (LMI) and workforce first-time homebuyers and (2) programs helping first-time homebuyers with down payment assistance and other housing-related costs,” said David Sand, chief impact strategist. “Homeownership promotes wealth creation by acting as a natural savings mechanism through home value appreciation. It also connects families to their communities and can result in better education, employment, and health outcomes.”

Alyssa Greenspan, CFA®, CEO and president, added: “Our clients are acutely aware of the challenges faced by first-time homebuyers, and CCM is excited to launch this new effort. In addition to wealth creation, homeownership offers savings, stability, and tax benefits. Our goal is to share an annual impact report on this initiative with metrics such as number of loans to first-time homebuyers, geographic breakdown of loans across the country, and wealth creation statistics.”

Clients meeting minimum requirements will be able to select this new initiative as a customizable impact option, similar to how clients have previously targeted Minority CARES and/or COVID-19 impact initiatives. The First-Time Homebuyer initiative will replace the close of the firm’s COVID-19 relief initiative, which was launched in 2020 to invest $100 million in bonds financing assistance to people and communities nationwide affected by the pandemic.

CCM is pleased to share that the COVID-19 initiative surpassed its original goal and ended 2023 investing $185 million since its inception. Although COVID-19 remains an ongoing health issue, it is no longer considered a global health emergency, and given a decline in issuance for relief efforts, the initiative closed at the end of 2023. CCM is grateful for the support from clients and will continue to invest in bonds financing COVID-19 relief should they become available and meet impact and financial criteria. Minority CARES remains open and continues to direct fixed income capital to advance racial equality and support minority people and communities.
