Due to the lack of affordable financing for community developers, there is a deficit of affordable housing options for low-wealth families. These families often spend more than 50% of their monthly income on housing, when it should be below 30%.

CommunityWorks provides community developers access to financing that would otherwise be unavailable for low-wealth community building projects. We provide loans up to $500,000 to support affordable housing development, community facilities, and commercial revitalization to help strengthen low-wealth communities.
