Developing Communities
   by Developing People 

Catalyst Community Capital, Inc. is a mission-driven financial institution that seeks to empower entrepreneurs and advance affordable housing initiatives by providing capital and technical assistance to small businesses and mission-aligned developers.  

Catalyst supports economic growth and revitalizes low-income communities by increasing the flow of capital to small businesses and mission-driven developers and organizations. The Catalyst team brings together a deep understanding of finance, business acumen, and a host of other resources to address economic and social issues. 

Catalyst Community Capital grows communities by growing people. We work with like-minded civic and human-service groups, small business owners looking to expand, and emerging developers who seek to build affordable and workforce housing by helping them navigate through the development process and providing loans to those who don’t yet qualify for traditional financing. These newly minted entrepreneurs, in turn, put their skills to work bettering themselves, their families, and their communities.

Our organization designs innovative ways to make financing attainable to low-and moderate-income communities and underserved populations, supported by a for-profit firm that similarly uses development for social good.
