CIC's dedicated focus is to create business and affordable housing opportunities.
The financial resources raised by CIC, from public and private sources, benefit the community by assisting entrepreneurs in creating and retaining jobs and for individuals in making the American dream of home ownership come true.
Working with other entities, CIC maximizes acquired resources and leverages them to accomplish its mission through administering the following types of programs: the micro-enterprise loan program, one-on-one mentoring and coaching for entrepreneurs, down payment assistance programs and the family self-sufficiency loan program. These programs are intended to provide access to capital to those who are unable to secure financing from traditional sources.
CIC works in collaboration with many public, non profit and private entities to carry out their mission. Aside from the programs CIC operates, CIC works to assist communities to maximize resources to carry out community, economic and redevelopment activities.
