What We do:

Community Development Finance

California Community Lender Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit broker/lender that’s organized to support sustainable development projects and local enterprise through mission-driven investment offerings to community stakeholders and impact investors.

 

We provide technical assistance to community development projects, nonprofit social programs, and local enterprise.

Rebuilding Our Community

CCL’s development finance team contributes on the Rebuilding Our Community - Sonoma County’s Construction and Housing Committees. The clients/cases presented to these committees are among the most severe; typically being months away from homelessness.  Due to an extreme shortage of rental vacancies, housing locators are struggling to match the sheer volume of cases brought to the committee.

Rebuild Mark West Community Preschool

The Mark West Community Preschool rebuild has a mission to not only restore what once was, but to also “be an example of what high quality early childhood education should be.” They are including all of the components in their rebuild to “send a message to our community that children are valued and important.” California Community Lender Inc. is providing ongoing support and technical assistance throughout the preschool’s financing and reconstruction process.

The Bright Village Project

Under the guidance of the Seigler Springs Community Redevelopment Association (SSCRA), the Bright Village project has been initiated by a group of survivors of the 2015 Valley Fire, which destroyed a total of 1300 homes in Lake County. California Community Lender Inc. is collaborating with SSCRA to organize long-term and affordable financing for the community development project.
