What We Do
Across the country, many communities, particularly communities of color, face barriers to accessing the fundamental building blocks that create the foundation for families to thrive. Institutional and systemic racism have excluded too many Americans from the resources they need to have a safe place to live, be healthy, and be financially secure. Reinvestment Fund is a mission-driven financial institution committed to making communities work for all people.
As a federally certified community development financial institution (CDFI), we bring financial and analytical tools to partnerships that work to ensure that everyone has access to essential opportunities: affordable places to live, access to nutritious food and health care, schools where their children can flourish, and strong, local businesses that support jobs.
We use data to understand markets, communities, and impediments to opportunity—and how investment and policy decisions can have the most powerful impact. We are part of coalitions that work to shift how entire sectors work to dismantle systems that perpetuate social and economic inequality.
