Community Partners Fund

Structured finance is a service offered to borrowers, lenders and government agencies seeking capital sources to fill financing gaps and innovative solutions for funding sources. The TBCG team is experienced in a variety of federal, state and local programs to help communities secure the capital needed to finance projects in urban and rural communities across America. At TBCG, we bring projects to life. We convert community master plans from ideas on paper to viable projects. We provide capital solutions to projects in largely urban communities sourced through community development corporations and redevelopment agencies in select cities across the country that seeks TBCG’s expertise in devising financing strategies for difficult to finance projects in high economic distressed urban areas. The projects selected by TBCG have been assessed for catalytic impact for areas with high poverty and unemployment rates. By working exclusively in redevelopments areas or with community development corporations certified as Community Housing Development Organizations (“CHDOs”), TBCG can serve as a developer or co-developer and offer flexible financing through our banking partners and assist in revitalizing target areas. TBCG brings development capacity to redevelopment projects.
