Capital Financing

PCDC is committed to helping meet the capital needs of community-based health providers across the country to expand and enhance primary care and other vital health services.

How we help

We raise capital from investors, government, banks, and foundations nationwide that share our commitment to advancing health equity. All look to us as a leading conduit of change—minimizing cost, maximizing flexibility, and optimizing outcomes.

We are mission-driven financial experts who help health centers and practices to find the right financial solutions to achieve their expansion goals.

We supply essential and flexible financing, especially in communities of color and other disinvested communities, including traditional term financing, short-term and/or bridge financing, tax credit financing, or selective working capital facilities.
