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.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our focus in 2020 has shifted.
While we continue to help households with emergency assistance, we've added a new education technology initiative to help secure Chromebooks and other similar technology for distribution in our communities, to those who need these tools for distance learning. We've sent donation requests to major technology companies as part of this effort, like Amazon and Google, and we've reached out to our partners for cash donations to help us purchase these items directly.
