You’re building the future. We’re right there with you.
And the First Year is On Us!
For a short time, Community Vision is offering loans with zero percent interest during the first year, to help nonprofit organizations finance real estate projects. Loans may be used for projects such as affordable housing, community facilities, or refinancing real estate loans.
Who is this loan good for?
Whether you are a social services organization looking to save money during your first year in a new building, an affordable housing developer who wants to secure property in the current real estate market, or an organization looking to refinance an existing loan, a loan with no interest the first year may be a great deal for you. By saving you money, these loans can help you make a strategic real estate move that might not otherwise seem affordable.
Loans are intended for affordable housing, mixed-use projects, community facilities, catalytic neighborhood projects, or other nonprofit real estate projects. Properties must be located in Community Vision’s 46-county service area. Maximum loan size is $2 million, with larger loans considered on a case-by-case basis. Minimum five year term, with a prepayment penalty for early payment. This special rate does not apply to working capital or lines of credit. Please see our complete Zero Percent Loan Term Sheet for more details.
