CIC is a nonprofit dedicated to the financial empowerment of Pima County and the surrounding area since 1996.

 We give the members of our community, who are shut out of and left behind in our economy, access to the knowledge and financing they need to pursue new opportunities. 


Helping aspiring homeowners through tax credits and down payment assistance


Providing much needed financing to small businesses and nonprofits, as well as, introducing innovative systems to promote private investment in early stage businesses.


Assisting schools with access to capital, bond compliance, and family engagement

How Can We Help You?

In the market for a home?

Need a loan for your business?

Looking for a new school for your child?

"I can’t thank CIC enough for giving me the opportunity to show what I can do as a business. I wouldn’t have been able to open my business without the loan I received."

Sydney Adams, Sydney’s Sweet Shoppe
