We invest in people and places to transform lives for equitable and development solutions.

What We Do

Cinnaire is a nonprofit community development financial organization that invests in people and places to transform communities through capital investments and development solutions. We believe that every community needs affordable housing and economic development in order to thrive.

Since 1993 we’ve been making high-impact investments and loans to developers and nonprofits that have resulted in more than $10 billion in community impact. Our investments focus on economically and racially marginalized communities that have been systematically denied access to capital. By leveraging innovative financial tools including the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit and the New Markets Tax Credit, we strive to change inequitable systems so that all people -- especially low-income and vulnerable individuals -- have the opportunities provided by living in healthy communities.
