PulteGroups Built to Honor Program Announces Newest Partnership with Operation Homefront

PulteGroup, Inc. (NYSE: PHM)
announced today a partnership with Operation
Homefront, a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to
build strong, stable, and secure military families. Together, Pulte and
Operation Homefront will provide mortgage-free homes to the families of
deserving veterans and families transitioning from military to civilian
life.

Through the company’s Built to Honor™ program, which was launched in
2013, PulteGroup has already delivered 50 new, mortgage-free homes to
veterans across the country. Now, in partnership with Operation
Homefront’s “Homes on the Homefront” initiative, PulteGroup is working
to expand the program even further.

“Our new partnership with Operation Homefront is a direct result of our
shared mission to support our veterans who have valiantly served our
country,” said Ryan Marshall, president and CEO of PulteGroup. “It is
only through our relationship with Operation Homefront and other
veterans’ organizations, along with the generous support of our
suppliers and trade partners, that we can make these homes a reality for
deserving families. We hope that in some small way we’re making a
difference for these families as they transition back to civilian life.”

PulteGroup and Operation Homefront have already kicked-off their
partnership in the “Homes on the Homefront” initiative by recently
gifting a Built to Honor home to a deserving family in St. Cloud,
Florida.

“We are honored to have the opportunity to work with PulteGroup to make
the dream of home ownership a reality for military families,” said Brig.
Gen. (ret.) John I. Pray Jr., President and CEO of Operation Homefront.
“PulteGroup clearly understands how a strong, stable and secure home
provides military families with the solid foundation they need to do
more than simply struggle to get by, but actually thrive in the civilian
communities they have worked so hard to protect.”

PulteGroup will also join forces with Operation Homefront on its new
pilot program, “Transitional Homes for Community Reintegration.” As
participating veterans begin the process of re-integrating into civilian
life, they are able to live in a safe, secure, single-family home for a
period of two to three years, while reducing debt, increasing savings
and preparing for independent and successful home ownership. As a part
of this new initiative, PulteGroup homes in Ruskin, Florida; Stephens
City, Virginia; and San Antonio, Texas will house participating
families. These homes will remain in Operation Homefront’s inventory for
15-20 years to serve an estimated 50-80 military families.
