The JB Brown Fund
Creating Opportunities to Fulfill Dreams
Since 2011, the JB Brown Fund, a partnership between USA Properties Fund, Inc. and LifeSTEPS, has been helping residents at USA owned and managed communities. We provide seniors and families assistance so that they can remain in their homes during a financial crisis; and we provide scholarships so that residents can improve their lives by attending a university, vocational or trade school, or through participation in youth sports.

By the Numbers
The JB Brown Fund has been helping residents at USA Properties Fund affordable communities since 2011. Here are our stats through 2019.
Robert Clark joined USA Properties Fund in 1993, and held numerous construction-related positions before being promoted to Vice President of Construction, Field Operations, in 2018. His can-do, get-the-job-done approach has greatly contributed to USA Properties Fund’s growth and success.
On August 24, 2020, Rob tragically passed away. In memory of our colleague and friend, and to continue his legacy, USA Properties has established the Robert Clark Trade School Scholarship.
The scholarship, formerly known as the JB Brown Fund Trade School Scholarship, honors Rob’s unwavering passion for the construction industry, his belief in supporting and teaching those starting out, and the sense of family that he fostered. The scholarship creates an opportunity for residents at USA Properties Fund’s affordable apartment communities to improve life for themselves and their families by attending an accredited trade school.
