What is Reinvestment Fund?
Reinvestment Fund is a catalyst for change in low-income communities. We integrate data, policy and strategic investments to improve the quality of life in low-income neighborhoods. Using analytical and financial tools, we bring high-quality grocery stores, affordable housing, schools and health centers to the communities that need better access—creating anchors that attract investment over the long term and help families lead healthier, more productive lives.
How We Work
Reinvestment Fund brings together individual investors, banks, government officials, private foundations and faith-based and community organizations to invest in projects that transform communities. As a federally certified community development financial institution (CDFI), we manage $946 million that comes from over 850 investors. Through strategic investment, leadership in public policy, real estate development and data analysis, we put resources in the communities of greatest need in the manner that achieves the greatest good—because everyone should have the opportunity to live in a diverse and economically vibrant neighborhood.
OUR WORK INCLUDES:
Capital at the Point of Impact
Reinvestment Fund’s strategies transform the health and well-being of neighborhoods throughout the country. Over the last 31 years, we have put $1.8 billion to work for communities across the country. We make long-term commitments to the cities and towns we work with—we know their business owners, their mayors, their community organizers and their residents—and together, we create thriving neighborhoods that families are proud to call home.
Thanks to our work, more than 2 million people nationwide have better access to critical services and amenities that help families start strong and stay healthy.
