What We Do
The Northside Community Development Fund is a neighborhood-focused community loan fund that started on Pittsburgh’s Northside 20 years ago. We make thriving communities for all by promoting economic opportunity and community revitalization. We help underserved populations by providing capital to spur business and job growth, the creation of affordable housing, and the redevelopment of Northside neighborhoods. All of these activities must include opportunities for all members of the community, including racial and ethnic minorities and women.
With the PA Coronavirus Small Business Assistance Program, we are one of 17 CFDIs to help administer the $225M of grants. We will be expanding beyond our Northside roots to serve all applicable businesses, including historically disadvantaged business owners, in Allegheny, Beaver, Greene, Lawrence and Washington counties.
Why We Do It
The Northside Fund works toward creating a vibrant Northside that offers opportunities for all its residents, for people that work on the Northside and for businesses that are located on the Northside.
Small Business Financing
By providing capital and training for entrepreneurs, we generate new opportunities for business and job growth and help business owners create wealth and employment in our neighborhoods.
By providing capital to local neighborhood organizations, we create affordable rental housing and affordable for-sale housing, mainly through the rehabilitation of existing vacant and blighted buildings.
Strategic Real Estate Investment
By providing capital to strategically important real estate projects, we help eliminate blight that are locations for new businesses that create high-quality jobs and provide anchors to local neighborhood business districts.
