Greystone, HAND Housing Partner to Bring Financing Solutions to BIPOC Developers

Commercial real estate finance company Greystone and the Housing Association of Nonprofit Developers (HAND), have launched Equity in Action, a partnership to increase access to working capital for real estate developers and investors in the Black, Indigenous, Person of Color (BIPOC) community. The program is aimed at developers in the Mid-Atlantic region.

As part of an exclusive benefit to HAND, BIPOC developers will gain direct access to advisory and financing solutions for affordable housing construction, refinancing, recapitalization, and acquisition, including access to Greystone’s FHA lending platform.

“Greystone is executing on its commitment to help reduce barriers to accessing capital for communities of color and beyond, and we are hyper-focused on bringing the benefits of our debt and equity solutions to groups that need them most,” said Steve Rosenberg, founder and CEO at Greystone. “HAND’s membership is aligned with our own mission to preserve and create desperately-needed affordable housing, and we are thrilled to create a direct access point for them to benefit from finance and advisory services to help achieve their goals. We hope this partnership with HAND serves as a model to creating access to financing for other BIPOC commercial borrower communities nationwide.”
