Share Your Stories: Affordable Housing Initiatives

Poster20230217_160805We recently asked members to share any affordable housing initiatives that companies are already involved in or may have planned. Brenda Silveus of Arizona-based Pioneer Title shared an initiative that her company promotes and supports. 

In her state, the Northern Arizona Housing Fund awards grants $25,000 grants for specific housing-related opportunities. She said Pioneer Title provides information to its customers about the housing fund and makes it easy for donations to be made at the close of a purchase, sale or refinance transaction. Pioneer then matches any donation. The title company educates Realtors and lenders with presentations to their team members and provide written information to their buyer and seller customers. Posters adorn Pioneer Title’s lobbies, encouraging donations through the escrow process.   Silveus said the program is in its infancy, but has done very well and the company is extremely proud to be a cheerleader for affordable housing. 

We love to hear examples like this and want to highlight other efforts as well. Even if it’s a closing fee discount to first-time homebuyers, we want to know! Share your initiatives at [email protected].
