About Capital Impact Partners

"Through capital and commitment, Capital Impact Partners helps people build communities of opportunity that break barriers to success. Through mission-driven financing, social innovation programs, capacity building, and impact investing, we work to champion key issues of equity and social and economic justice. Our commitment to community focuses on ensuring that individuals with low-to-moderate incomes have access to quality health care and education, healthy foods, affordable housing, and the ability to age with dignity. A nonprofit Community Development Financial Institution, Capital Impact has disbursed more than $2.9 billion since 1982. Building communities of opportunity requires that people at all income levels have decent, affordable places to live and thrive. We believe that mixed-use, mixed-income neighborhoods with access to employment and social services contribute to the vibrancy and economic growth of communities.
Capital Impact is leads housing efforts nationwide through initiatives such as the Detroit Neighborhoods Fund, the Bay’s Future Fund in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the DHCD Preservation Fund in Washington, D.C. At 12/31/2020, we had financed the preservation, acquisition, and construction of more than 41,184 homes across the country.
Our leadership in delivering financial and social impact has resulted in Capital Impact being rated by S&P Global and recognized by Aeris for our performance. Headquartered in Arlington, VA, Capital Impact Partners operates nationally, with local offices in Austin, TX, Detroit, MI, New York, NY, and Oakland, CA. In 2020, Capital Impact launched a new enterprise with CDC Small Business Finance under one leadership team and national strategy to reinvent traditional and mainstream financial systems. Our goal is to ensure these systems equitably serve communities of color to drive community-led solutions that support economic mobility and wealth creation. Learn more at"
