Rent Reporting for Credit Building Summit Report (Enterprise Community Partners)

September 6, 2022
In the spring of 2022 Enterprise and Credit Builders Alliance (CBA) conducted a three-part series of conversations that advanced rent reporting as an equitable asset building strategy for affordable housing residents. Rent reporting is a process by which tenants receive a positive impact on their credit score, just by paying rent on time. Through our collective efforts, we brought different stakeholders from the private sector, nonprofits, housing providers, government, and philanthropy. Each session focused on a different theme, including research, implementation, and policy. The sessions built our collective understanding of rent reporting for credit building as we continue to develop policy, research, new programs, dialogue, and ultimately system change.
