A promising, underserved market

One in five Americans lives with a disability, a figure that is growing fast because of medical advances and the aging baby boomer generation. Yet the financial needs of this market are largely underserved, including a lack of customized capital and a significant shortage of affordable housing.

CDFI FundThe DOF was founded by veteran finance professionals to bridge this gap and tap this market. Certified by the U.S. Treasury Department as a non-profit Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), we operate around the country, wherever the need and the marketplace are sound, serving people with all types of disabilities.

  • We finance high impact projects via co-lending, direct lending, bridge and term loans, as well as gap, predevelopment, acquisition and rehabilitation financing.
  • We provide sophisticated, customized advisory services and act as liaison for investors, banks, insurance companies, non-profit organizations and other financial institutions.
