Atlanta’s Best New Homes TV recently interviewed Belinda Dumas, Atlanta branch manager of New American Funding’s Stockbridge office, about the company prioritizing diversity through its mortgage programs and company practices. New American Funding’s New American Dream Initiative, Latino Focus Committee and its various education programs demonstrate the company’s commitment to raising awareness of the challenges that minority populations face when pursuing homeownership.

“[The programs] show a pathway to homeownership. New American Funding is a company that promotes inclusion both internally and externally…[Our] internal committee discuss[es] challenges, create[s] solutions [and] educate[s] African Americans on grassroots community levels. We also host educational seminars on homeownership…we have hired mortgage professionals who reflect the communities we seek and we have a higher than industry average of African American mortgage professionals that we are very excited [to have] and proud of.”

An example of New American Funding’s commitment to helping underserved families achieve homeownership is an FHA loan it offers where it covers 100 percent of the down payment, rather than only three-and-a-half percent.
