WHO WE ARE
Community Development Capital is a non-profit (501c3) certified Community Development Finance Institution (CDFI). Our mission is to transform low wealth communities by developing and utilizing innovative financing products to bring affordable and accessible capital, technical assistance, and construction management to developers and entrepreneurs.
Our loan products provide financing for the acquisition, pre-development, and development of affordable housing, commercial and mixed-use properties throughout Louisiana. We utilize a data-driven framework to restore and build wealth in distressed communities, yielding financial, social and environmental returns.
We accept investments from public and private sources in the form of grants, senior debt, and subordinated debt, and then provide financial assistance in the form of loans and equity to organizations either lacking access to or unable to afford the cost of capital from conventional sources. Financing is available to nonprofit organizations and for-profit real estate developers and investors.
