Finance Fund Capital Corporation
Funding for Low-Income Communities
There are many challenges to bringing capital to distressed urban and rural communities. Insufficient income or assets and difficulty in meeting credit requirements can make it impossible for potential borrowers to access affordable capital from mainstream lenders. The resulting lack of investment in impoverished neighborhoods contributes to a cycle of declining property values, lower tax revenues and high rates of unemployment and poverty.
Who We Are
Finance Fund Capital Corporation (FCAP) is a nonprofit certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) that provides financing for projects in low-income communities and builds bridges to conventional financial institutions and capital markets. We work alongside for-profit businesses and community based nonprofit organizations operating in low-income communities to help drive economic revitalization and community development.
What We Do
FCAP’s funding programs include flexible loans that support a wide range of projects. Capital is used to build and rehabilitate community facilities, commercial and industrial properties, retail and office space and create permanent, private sector jobs.
