CRA Qualified Investment Fund Bond Purchase Helps Finance Affordable Rental Property Designed Exclusively For Seniors
The bond that helped finance the project was a Fannie Mae Delegated and Underwriting Servicing (DUS) bond, purchased in part by the CRA Qualified Investment Fund, on behalf of one of its shareholders, Community Bank of Tri-County, headquartered in Waldorf, Maryland.
The CRA Fund was launched in 1999 as a vehicle to help banks meet the requirements of the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). The CRA, created in 1977, mandates that banks make capital available to the low- and moderate-income communities which they serve. Community Bank of Tri-County has been a shareholder in the Fund since 2006 and targets their CRA investments in the Fund to benefit community development in Charles, St. Mary's, and Calvert counties in Maryland.
"Community Bank of Tri-County is dedicated to helping the communities in which our clients and employees work and live," said Michael Middleton, Chief Executive Officer of Community Bank of Tri-County. "Lakeview at Victoria Park, designed exclusively for seniors, is a great example of a property that positively impacts the health and mobility of its residents while simultaneously offering first-class features."
"Baby boomers represent one of the largest population growths in U.S history and with the average life expectancy in 2012 reaching 78.5 years of age, the senior population continues to grow," said Barbara VanScoy, Chief Impact Investment Officer of the CRA Qualified Investment Fund. "Many of these citizens need an affordable place to call home; Lakeview at Victoria Park offers this plus an enhanced lifestyle that's one-of-a-kind."About Community Capital Management and the CRA Qualified Investment Fund Community Capital Management, Inc. is a Fort Lauderdale-based SEC-registered investment advisor.
