The Northside Community Development Fund’s Annual Luncheon was held at the Hyundai Club at PNC Park on November 13, 2019. John Fetterman, Lieutenant Governor of the Pennsylvania was the keynote speaker this year.

Since NSCDF’s inception in 2000, the Fund has provided financing to more than 230 small businesses and strategic real estate projects on the Northside. We have increased our loan capital to almost $14 million, continued our SBA Micro Loan program to help start-up businesses, and continue to provide financing for residential and commercial real estate development projects in Northside neighborhoods. Since our inception, we have provided financing totaling more than $25 million.

The Fund works closely with neighborhood and business leaders to insure we are investing in job-creating businesses and strategically important real estate development projects that are consistent with a broader Northside revitalization strategy.

We recognized several key partners who have done much to reinvest in our Northside neighborhoods. We had more than 200 business, governmental and community leaders gather for this important event.

We would like to thank our 2019 sponsors; their generous support is critical to our success and mission to provide financing and development services to promote community development on Pittsburgh’s Northside.
