Public Policy & Advocacy

At Cinnaire, we are driven by our unwavering belief that all people deserve the opportunities provided by living in healthy communities. We work to achieve that vision by creating partnerships that drive investment in the communities we serve, including rural and urban areas that are underserved by the mainstream financial sector. To be successful, our work requires public-private partnerships and public policies that encourage investment in all communities. We believe it is essential to educate policymakers on the role of critical programs and advocate for policies that will boost opportunities in the communities we serve.

Cinnaire’s public policy and advocacy efforts rely on close coordination with our partners throughout our footprint. We are most effective when we highlight the positive impact of quality, affordable housing and community facilities for the individuals we serve.
