CCI partners with national, regional, and member organizations to take on system-level strategies with their affiliates across the country. Through these partnerships, more community leaders can learn CCI’s approach to transforming community investment.

A Shared Commitment

Across the U.S., local leaders are uniting across fields and sectors to undo the legacy of structural racism and long-term disinvestment. CCI’s partnerships provide opportunities for them to use capital absorption to advance their goals, strengthen their local community investment systems, and unlock the capital they need to create equity in their communities.

Current Partnerships
