LIIF Unveils Social Impact Calculator 2.0

You are here:

In December, LIIF launched the Social Impact Calculator 2.0, an updated tool that allows community developers to measure the true impact of their investments. The Social Impact Calculator aims to help answer the question “What works to improve the lives of children and families?”

This iteration of the resource allows users to calculate an internal rate of social return, select from different social discount rates, analyze multiple areas of impact for a single project and assess cumulative impact across several projects. Affordable Housing Finance highlights the scope of the Calculator and its continuous improvement in an interview with LIIF’s president and CEO Nancy O. Andrews:

“We have appreciated the positive response to the calculator’s release and the conversations and feedback it has created. We look forward to continuing to engage with others who are seeking to measure, accelerate and communicate the social impact of community development projects.”
