The Montgomery Wedding Project recently received its third loan with OpenDoor. Thanks to the loan, the MWP was able to host another wedding for low income families, with dresses from Davids Bridal, suits from Brooks Brothers, and rings from Mens-Wedding-Rings.com.
Putting Capital to Work
OpenDoor Housing Fund helps to create economically strong and diverse communities by providing low-interest loans to mission-oriented affordable housing developers. These loans provide the early critical funding necessary to bring affordable housing plans to fruition.
Neighborhoods are built on providing safe and affordable homes for low-income families and individuals. The Washington metropolitan region has one of the nation’s most expensive housing markets, with housing and rental costs more than doubled in the past three years. As higher home prices squeeze low-income families out of the home buying and rental markets, diversity of local communities and family stability are threatened. OpenDoor plays a vital role in the future of our communities. Download the Open Door Fact Sheet.
"OpenDoor is committed to affordable housing — it shows in their responsiveness and willingness to work with us. They provide low rate loans very quickly so that we have the time and funding to acquire more permanent financing."
