We build stronger, healthier communities by providing local organizations with custom-tailored financing solutions for complex structured financings.  These involve public/private partnerships, tax credits, grant capital, and/or traditional debt.

Areas of Investment

  • New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC)
    With NMTC allocations, RDF expanded its capacity to fund its core programs by considering mixed-use & special purpose projects that provide clear, mission-consistent impact in underserved communities.
  • Philanthropic Bridge Loans
  • Leveraged Loans
  • Transit-Oriented development (TOD) These investments enable the development of mixed-income housing, office, and retail space in walkable communities near quality public transportation, creating better access to jobs, housing and opportunity for people of all stages of life.
    Financing Available:  Expansions, equipment loans, working capital & real estate lending.
