Integrated Transactions: An Emerging Focus for Community Development

Topic CDFIs

This paper examines the growing range of development models from projects that integrate two or more sectors. Integrated projects are increasingly a strategy used to deliver deeper impact to low-income communities by connecting a range of critical components from mixed-income housing to health centers to grocery stores. These innovative, emerging models combine people and place-based strategies, and often require more flexibility and technical support to move forward than the typical capital project. Co-authored by Reinvestment Fund and Low Income Investment Fund, the publication features Reinvestment Fund’s investments in the Stephen and Sandra Sheller 11th Street Family Health Services project in Philadelphia, Vicente’s Supermarket in Brockton and Paseo Verde in Philadelphia. The publication was made possible through generous support from The Kresge Foundation.
