Affordable Housing & Community Loans

Building a Better Community for All

CommunityWorks provides affordable housing and community loans up to $750,000 to support affordable housing development, community facilities, and commercial revitalization to strengthen low-wealth communities.

Due to the lack of affordable financing for community developers, there is a deficit of affordable housing options for low-wealth families. CommunityWorks provides community developers and nonprofits access to equitable financing that would otherwise be unavailable for low-wealth community-building projects.
