C3 Fund – CDFI
Community Development Financial Institutions play an important role in generating economic growth and opportunity in underserved communities. The CDFI designation is awarded by the US Treasury to mission-driven financial institutions that support economically disadvantaged communities through the injection of new sources of capital into neighborhoods which have historically lacked access to financing.
The C3 Fund will place capital into low to moderate income census tracts in a way that is beneficial for the borrower and the community.
The four pillars that C3 focuses on are:
1) Closing wealth gap for BIPOC and women investors
2) Revitalizing historically disinvested neighborhoods
3) Creating quality affordable and workforce housing
4) Creating quality jobs for local subcontractors
