Community Capital New York
Opportunity is our mission. Community Capital New York is an economic catalyst. A nonprofit alternative lender, we serve eight counties in the Hudson Valley and Fairfield County, CT. Community Capital provides loans that create quality jobs, revitalized Main Streets, affordable homes and tax revenues to foster opportunity, change lives and create impact. Through flexible, innovative and responsive lending coupled with financial education, we create economically healthy communities and enable traditionally underserved people to become stakeholders in the Hudson Valley’s and Fairfield County’s economy. We work outside the margins of conventional finance to bring individuals and communities into the economic mainstream and create financial independence through financial, educational and business development services to give low to moderate income people the resources needed to succeed. Community Capital New York makes the American Dream come true by providing working people with working capital and the power of knowledge. Company Overview Formerly known as the Westchester Housing Fund, Community Capital New York changed its name to reflect our growing menu of programs and our expanded service area that now includes Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester counties in the Lower Hudson Valley, the Bronx and Fairfield County, CT. Community Capital New York is a certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI). Community Capital New York is a responsible and cost effective steward for community and economic development, recycling funds provided by the government, corporations and individual “social impact” investors to maximize opportunity. Our loan programs have generated thousands of dollars of tax revenues for our communities, lessened the carbon footprint and made dozens of Main Streets more vibrant and sustainable.
