Workforce Housing Fund

Pikes Peak Real Estate


The PPREF Workforce Housing Fund

PPREF created the Workforce Housing Fund to pool investments from partner foundations into program related investments (PRIs) for new workforce housing projects.

The Fund is a revolving loan fund. Awards to projects are expected to be returned with interest when construction financing is closed. The terms and rate of the loan are negotiable depending on the project’s scope and timeline.
