We deliver capital that meets your needs

Financing is one tool we use to create strong, vibrant communities. A Certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), we ensure that projects in underserved areas often overlooked by traditional banks have access to investment capital. We recognize the special dynamics of lending in these communities and can help you get the most complicated transactions done. For over 30 years, we’ve helped forward-thinking developers, organizations and businesses revitalize neighborhoods and deliver social impact.

Lender & Partner
As your partner and advocate, we work to secure financing solutions that meet your individual needs and circumstances. We have more than 30 years of lending experience and can further utilize our relationships with traditional financial institutions, insurance companies, pension funds, foundations and impact investors to leverage their funds to support a range of community building projects.

See Opportunity, Not Risk
Where many lenders may only see risk supporting projects in low to middle income communities, we see opportunity to create financial and social impact. We focus on supporting health centers, charter schools, mixed income housing, Co-ops, healthy food access projects and dignified aging alternatives to create a strong fabric of opportunity for all people at every stage of life.

We do not just measure results based on the return on our balance sheet. Social impact drives our work. We want to see jobs created, kids educated, healthier lives, access to housing, strong businesses and elders living independently in their homes. When we deploy our financing to make this happen it is a win-win for us, our borrowers and investors – and most importantly – those living in communities across this country.


Whatever your financing need, Capital Impact has likely done it. We can serve as your single loan source, thus eliminating the need for you to secure many layers of capital that can be time consuming and difficult to assemble. From in-person consultations to site visits, we stand by you at every stage of the process to understand your specific needs and see your project from idea to launch.

Loans That Fit Your Needs
Every project is different and we work to match your needs with the right product. Our range of expertise includes bridge, acquisition, construction and working capital loans. This allows us to work with you on everything from equipment purchasing to expansion and renovation to permanent financing.

Support for Innovation
Helping non-profit organizations, small entrepreneurs, large developers and multi-site organizations scale up their operations and impact is our goal. In addition to traditional transactions, we support innovative approaches that amplify impact such as school-based health care centers, mobile service providers and food hubs that service multiple businesses.

Flexible Terms and Timelines
We strive to provide you with loans aligned with real-world circumstances. We pride ourselves in issuing competitive loans that are also flexible and appropriately structured to fit your repayment abilities. This means offering financing ranging from $300,000 to multi-million dollar transactions, utilizing New Market Tax Credits and issuing long term bonds.

“Challenging as it was at times, the participation of Capital Impact Partners helped in what turned out to be a fairly complex financing package. “Without the…involvement of our financing partners, we would not be in the position we are today–restoration underway!”
