Housing & HomeownershipWhether you own or rent your home, you deserve a safe, affordable place to live.
Homeownership has long been the primary way for families to build wealth in the United States. Owning an affordable home can offer working families stability, security and a legacy to pass on to the next generation. Eliminating racial disparities in homeownership is one of the most powerful ways to narrow the racial wealth divide. However, lack of access to affordable financial products, the legacy of discriminatory housing policy, the shortage of affordable starter homes and other barriers keep too many Americans from seeing them benefits of their investment—or even starting on the path to homeownership.
At Prosperity Now, we believe that with the right tools and resources, more low- and moderate-income Americans and people of color can unlock the wealth-building benefits of homeownership.
