What We Do

Community Lending

We partner with people, institutions and community development entities to invest in assets that enable individuals to thrive and neighborhoods to realize their full potential. Our investments include childcare centers, community facilities, educational services, healthy food financing, manufacturing centers, retail hubs and more.

We make investments on a project-by-project basis, as well as through our multi-asset fund structures. We often use federal New Markets Tax Credits and/or concessionary capital as part of the structure of our investments and/or funds.
