For over 30 years, Bart Harvey has been an innovator in providing decent, affordable housing and a path out of poverty for low-income families. As the former Chair and CEO of Enterprise Community Partners, Mr. Harvey is credited with growing Enterprise’s impact from investing $200 million supporting 5,000 affordable homes annually, to more than $1 billion supporting more than 20,000 homes annually.
Mr. Harvey’s unwavering commitment to providing homes for America’s working families matches Calvert Impact Capital’s mission, and he equips our board with expertise in an area we have a significant amount of our investment portfolio dedicated to: affordable – and sustainable – housing for families who need it most. Along with Enterprise co-founder James Rouse, Mr. Harvey helped Congress create the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit, which provides financing for the majority of affordable rental homes in the country. He also led Enterprise’s launch of the Green Communities initiative – an unprecedented commitment to sustainable development’s benefits to low-income communities nationwide.
