Social Impact Financing

CIC’s Revolving Loan Program – “Paying back to Pay it Forward”

Community Investment Corporation (CIC) manages a Revolving Loan Program which lends funds to businesses and nonprofit organizations throughout Arizona.  As a nonprofit organization ourselves, we operate differently than traditional banks. Our loan portfolio is relatively small, and we rely on each and every borrower’s payments to fund future loans.  Our loan clients aren’t simply paying us back when they make a payment, but they are paying it forward to the next loan recipient.  Therefore, we place more emphasis on the character of our borrowers than many traditional lenders. 

In addition, we have partnered with Wefunder to extend equity financing to our business community in southern Arizona.  This form of financing, where entrepreneurs receive financing in exchange for an ownership stake in their company, works well for early stage and startup businesses.

With every deal we make, our goal is to improve the lives and livelihoods of those in our community while strengthening our local economy.

Home Ownership Assistance

CIC participates in a variety of programs to help Arizona families secure safe, affordable homes.  

The Pima Tucson Homebuyer’s Solution and HOME programs are two types of down payment assistance aimed and helping buyers with the costs of purchasing a home.  The Mortgage Credit Certificate program helps qualified first-time homebuyers reduce their federal tax liability by providing an annual tax credit of up to $2,000 for as long as you own and remain in the home you purchased.
