CDF’s Impact

At CDF, we focus on projects that have a positive, catalytic impact in low-income neighborhoods in Greater Cincinnati.

Our real estate financing focuses on projects that result in substantial redevelopment of property and do at least one of the following:

  • Align with the goals of a community development corporation, neighborhood council, municipality or economic development agency
  • Create or preserve affordable housing
  • Produce market-rate development in areas experiencing population loss or blight
  • Contribute to job creation through commercial or mixed-use development
  • Improve access to healthy food in USDA-designated food deserts and for low-income households lacking access
  • Strengthen communities through the arts

Our nonprofit facilities and equipment loans support organizations that serve low-income neighborhoods and special-needs populations in Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky and Dayton,Ohio.
