Fannie Mae wants to join forces with you to create greater access to stable, affordable housing within sustainable communities using housing as a lever to improve education outcomes and economic mobility for low-income households.
When families live in stable and affordable homes in a sustainable community, they have greater opportunities to prosper in other aspects of life, including education and economic advancement. For the third phase of the Sustainable Communities Innovation Challenge (“The Challenge”), we are seeking comprehensive solutions, including mature ideas and proven models that are ready to scale, which expand access to quality affordable housing for underserved and low-income people while catalyzing opportunities in education and forging pathways to economic mobility.
