Housing Programs
CEDAC Housing provides financing and expertise to non-profit, community-based developers looking to build or preserve quality affordable housing in Massachusetts.
Children's Investment Fund
Children’s Investment Fund offers non-profit, community-based child care providers the financial resources and technical assistance they need to create high quality learning environments.
Commonwealth Workforce Coalition
Commonwealth Workforce Coalition works with community-based workforce development professionals to ensure they have the tools to help job seekers in their communities.

For more than 35 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.

  • CEDAC Summer 2017 Newsletter

    Summer’s warm weather usually brings with it groundbreakings and ribbon cuttings, and this summer was no different. In this newsletter, you will read about two new affordable housing projects that have completed predevelopment work and are moving into the construction phase. These projects include the first major housing development by the Southwest Boston CDC, the Residences at Fairmount Station, a transit-oriented project in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Boston, and the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg House sponsored by Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly (JCHE), a 61-unit supportive elderly housing project in Brighton that enjoys the support of public officials at all levels of government.  CEDAC is honored to support our non-profit partners who are developing these projects.
