Citi launches Home Matters

Movement aims to raise awareness and increase support for community development organizations

Citi Community Development is pleased to announce the launch of Home Matters, a movement to rally America around the importance of Home, raise awareness of housing issues facing the nation, and educate Main Street on the important role community development corporations and community development finance institutions play in providing safe and secure neighborhoods. This movement is an opportunity to raise awareness and increase support for community development organizations both with the general public and policy-makers.

Shaun Donovan, HUD Secretary was the keynote speaker at the national launch and spoke passionately about why "Home Matters." Citi Community Development played a pivotal role in the creation of this movement by providing both financial and technical support.

Home Matters is spearheaded by a coast-to-coast coalition of leaders, community groups, nonprofit organizations, companies, and the public at large. That coalition includes regional and local organizations providing housing and related services in 26 states – from California to Vermont, Florida to Washington. Link to Press Release.
