Welcome

All children deserve the opportunity to learn and develop in well-designed learning spaces. We all understand that clean, safe and healthy environments are an important component of successful teaching and learning.

For over 25 years, Children’s Investment Fund has been providing technical expertise and financing to non-profit child care centers planning to improve or expand their facilities. Our primary goal is to increase the supply and quality of child care facilities in Massachusetts. We offer high quality training programs, access to professional consultants and funding to pay for predevelopment expenses, acquisition of property and permanent financing.

We are excited to share with you the launch of our new website. If you are a non-profit organization, we look forward to helping you turn your vision of high quality space into a reality.

“Our physical space now matches the quality of our program. Our building is designed around our philosophy of community. When parents walk in the door, they are sold. The stunning interior and the way that our teachers take pride in documenting what children are learning in this beautiful space send a visual message about what is important to us.”

  • Read Now: 2016 Annual Report

    Dear Friends, We are pleased to share with you the latest annual report from the Community Economic Development Assistance Corporation (CEDAC). This annual report highlights the success of Massachusetts as a national leader in community development and the role that CEDAC’s unique lending model has had in that success. We are proud of the Commonwealth and of the positive impact that we are able to have on individuals, families, and children that are served by our non-profit partners. The report includes examples of the continued commitment that the both CEDAC and the Baker-Polito administration have made to support affordable housing, high quality child care, and workforce development. It is difficult to share all of the good work that CEDAC, Children's Investment Fund and Commonwealth Workforce Coalition do on a yearly basis. So this year, we’ve looked to data and visuals to create a dynamic and easy to digest report to tell our story. The success of our efforts relies on effective relationships with many public and private partners, and we thank you for your contributions and collaboration. Please enjoy Annual Report 2016. We look forward to hearing your feedback. Sincerely, Roger Herzog Executive Director, CEDAC
