Ways We Help

Funding for a Bright Future

 

We finance businesses and real estate projects throughout Allegheny County. Whether you’re a small business getting started, or a new real estate project ready to begin construction, we have the right resources and knowledge.

 

Our Story

The Neighborhood Community Development Fund (formerly known as the “Northside Community Development Fund”) was founded in 2000 to create economic opportunity in 14 neighborhoods on Pittsburgh’s Northside. The collapse of heavy industry and the blue-collar economy that supported living wage jobs devastated the Northside. This collapse was followed by rapid population loss and a rising number of vacant and abandoned properties. Co-founder and Executive Director Mark Masterson believed that access to capital for real estate development and small business capital could turn the tide – making the Northside a thriving part of the region once again. Today, we bring our resources and expertise to neighborhoods throughout Allegheny County.
