For over 40 years, CEDAC has helped to strengthen communities across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts by providing non-profit community development organizations with the financial resources they need to build quality affordable housing and child care facilities. Additionally, our staff of professionals help affordable housing developers, child care providers, and workforce development professionals with the technical assistance they need to turn an idea into reality. Our early stage capital and predevelopment loans has led to the production of thousands of affordable housing units from Boston to the Berkshires, and to quality child care centers in urban, suburban, and rural communities.
Welcome to our Website – if you are a non-profit community development organization seeking to produce or preserve affordable housing or a community-based non-profit childcare provider looking to upgrade or renovate your learning space, we may be able to help you. And if you have any questions regarding our loan products or our public policy work, please do not hesitate to contact us.

- Black Lives Matter: Recommitting Ourselves to Pursuing a More Just and Equitable World
We at CEDAC mourn the recent deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Rayshard Brooks, and countless other Black Americans whose lives have been cut short by racist violence. Their murders are the legacy of centuries of racial oppression in the United States. We stand with the thousands who protest, demanding equity and justice. Five decades ago, led by Black and Brown people, the community development movement emerged from the civil rights struggles of the 1960’s. The leaders of that movement, among them the great teacher, elected official, and community organizer Mel King, knew the trauma that large-scale real estate development could inflict on neighborhoods that found themselves in the path of urban renewal. Mel and others founded CEDAC to support community development corporations and the people that CDCs serve. Read the Spring Newsletter
