An interactive tool that aggregates over 500,000 transactions from three programs that drive investment into underserved communities—the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC), Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) and New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) programs. The investments support a range of activities, from affordable housing to commercial real estate development, consumer and business lending, and more. The CIE was built to show geographic comparisons and trends over time in a way that is easily customizable. For example, some users will view the full range of investment activity; others, only business and commercial real estate loans.
