PCDC's Impact: CDFI

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

As a national nonprofit Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), PCDC builds, expands, and strengthens primary care, primarily in low-income, underinvested communities. Nationally, PCDC has provided direct financing and leveraged more than $1 billion across 130 primary care health center projects, with more than $5 of private investment for each $1 of public investment.

Results include primary care access for millions of patients, 10,000+ jobs created in low-income communities, and more than 1.6 million square feet of space transformed. In 2019, PCDC received from Aeris — the CDFI rating and information service — a Four-star impact performance rating with Policy Plus and AA+ financial strength and performance rating.

Combined with our capital performance improvement and advocacy functions, our goal is to achieve health equity.
