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.

  • 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.

Children's Investment Fund's Theresa Jordan, Director of Children's Facilities Finance, and Kira Taj, Associate Director of Research and Development, speak to the importance of quality learning space and an important new resource and training for facility design in this week's INSITES!
