We have the Keys you need to unlock the door to Homeownership. Not only do we have resources to help expand homeownership access, but we have tools to help people maintain their homeownership status and build inter-generational wealth. All you need to do is take the Keys and open the door.
Keys Unlock Dreams is a nationwide initiative, sponsored by the National Fair Housing Alliance and Urban Institute, designed to provide consumers with the resources and expert information they need to make homeownership a reality.
Today’s housing and financial markets have not served everyone well. What’s more—the neighborhoods where we live are not fair and equitable. Some communities are enriched with resources, like bank branches, healthcare facilities, well-resourced schools, healthy food centers, green spaces, and other important amenities. Unfortunately, other neighborhoods, largely communities of color and urban and rural areas, lack these critical resources. Many areas lack affordable housing options. But we’re changing that through the Keys Unlock Dreams Initiative.
