Building Safe and Affordable Housing Projects in Communities
Community investment directly finances socially or economically beneficial projects in disadvantaged communities that generally cannot attract financing through traditional market mechanisms. The mission is to invigorate local communities and provide the poor with avenues to economic self-sufficiency. Community investing provides an alternative source of capital for community development organizations and a more efficient way to channel funds to these institutions. Long term, it is intended to create a mainstream financial mechanism for the general public to invest in these community institutions.
