Flexible financing for projects that put power, agency and capital closer to communities
We leverage our comprehensive lending platform to drive equitable outcomes for Black, Latino, and other people and communities of color.
We nimbly deploy capital in historically excluded communities using a variety of lending tools, including funding from CDFI Fund, Community Reinvestment Act, New Markets Tax Credits, Capital Magnet Fund and more. Equity lies at the core of our lending practices, where we recognize the significance of addressing historical disparities and systemic barriers. Using creative and focused lending products, we provide much-needed capital to those committed to building opportunity-rich communities. Our priority is to support lending opportunities that promote wealth creation, job growth and economic stability, fostering more equitable and inclusive communities.
