Florida Community Loan Fund receives grant from Truist Charitable Fund to support flexible financing in low-income communities.

Truist and FCLF 2024Florida Community Loan Fund is pleased to announce it received a grant from the Truist Community Catalyst Initiative – a three-year program supporting local efforts with statewide impact funded by the Truist Charitable Fund, a donor-advised fund administered by The Winston-Salem Foundation. FCLF will use the $500,000 grant to support its loan programs that offer more flexible financing options for affordable housing and to increase the organization’s capacity.

“The Truist Community Catalyst Initiative grant will amplify FCLF’s ability to maximize opportunities for low-income Floridians,” said Ignacio Esteban, FCLF CEO. “The innovative, flexible features offered through our loan programs will create safe, affordable housing and help strengthen communities.”

“As Florida’s population grows, the need for affordable housing continues to be an issue that needs our full attention,” said Truist Regional President Steve Fisher. “We believe this grant, along with the ongoing efforts of the Florida Community Loan Fund, will help fulfill our purpose to inspire and build better lives and communities.”

This grant is one of 17 grants across 13 states that will create significant impact across Truist’s primary markets, including placing over 1,000 individuals into livable wage jobs, developing or preserving 700 affordable housing units, deploying $65 million in loan capital through 500 small business and home loans, and providing 3,100 low- to moderate-income individuals with new access to essential community services.
