Affordable loans for affordable housing
Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the U.S. will have access to flexible and affordable loans to expand affordable housing through a 2019 $15 million MetLife term loan commitment to the organization’s U.S. Treasury-certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI). Habitat for Humanity International created a CDFI to lend to the local Habitat affiliates across the U.S. through its Habitat Mortgage Solutions platform. MetLife is the first term lender to support the Habitat CDFI. The transaction builds on more than 20 years of lending by MetLife to support Habitat’s work in the U.S. Habitat supports the financial health of homebuyers with financial education and affordable mortgages with monthly payments limited to no more than 30% of the family’s income.
