The Community Investment Fund of Indiana (CIFI), founded in 2010, is a non-profit Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) certified by the U.S Department of Treasury. CIFI offers loans and development services in underserved communities throughout the state of Indiana.
Our purpose is to generate positive change by expanding financial opportunities for underserved communities, entrepreneurs who do not have access to traditional sources of financing, businesses located in economically distressed areas and individuals from low to moderate households. CIFI finances projects that start or sustain small businesses, create jobs and foster community economic development.
CIFI works with its customers, financial institutions and other community partners to fill financial and capacity gaps. CIFI offers our loans and development services to:
- Multifamily affordable housing development
- Non-profit organizations
We want to help empower local businesses and neighborhood organizations to become sustainable, resilient institutions. Our loans and services help them build capacity and become eligible for traditional funding so they can continue to grow and benefit our communities.
