Our Policy Voice

CPC’s affordable housing mission drives our focus on three goals that elevate urgent community needs and shape our investments and our policy agenda. In FY22, 94% of CPC’s dollars were deployed to address one or more impact areas:

  • Expand housing access and seek new ways to lower the cost of producing affordable housing
  • Invest in closing the racial wealth gap, and increase diversity and equity in the development industry
  • Expand investment in the green economy and lessen the impact of climate change by financing affordable, energy-efficient housing
