- "Mi Primera Casa!"
The Hispanic Federation has announced the launch of a new housing initiative, "Mi Primera Casa!" or "My First Home." In collaboration with the New York Urban League, Mi Primera Casa/My First Home is a public education campaign that encourages minority homeownership, promotes opportunities to improve access to fair financing, and provides financial education to low-income and minority communities. The campaign underscores the importance of homeownership for families of color as a means of helping communities build economic stability and wealth. "Mi Primera Casa!" seeks to increase access to credit for Black and Latino families to rebuild communities devastated by the economic and housing collapse of 2008 and rebuild wealth among these families. The gap in homeownership rates between households of color and whites has widened, 45.2 percent compared to 71.1 percent, respectively. More black and Latino borrowers had their wealth tied up in their homes, and when the housing bubble burst, lost a greater share of their wealth.The mission of the Hispanic Federation is to empower and advance the Hispanic community.
