CEDAC has provided early stage capital financing for non-profit, community-based developers building quality affordable housing in Massachusetts for over 35 years. We provide non-profit developers with the predevelopment capital they need to move their projects from concept to construction.
Our loan products provide the funding to acquire property, hire a team of professional consultants to move a development forward, and leverage additional financing. CEDAC provides approximately $20 million in patient lending each year.
In addition to financing, CEDAC’s team offers technical assistance to help ensure these projects are a success. We work with community development corporations and other non-profit developers, large and small, to plan and implement project development.

In 2016, through funding by the Kuehn Charitable Foundation, CEDAC established a new planning grant program to help non-profit corporations in Massachusetts explore the feasibility at the earliest stages of project development. Named for the foundation’s creator Robert H. Kuehn, Jr., the Kuehn Planning Grants will be up to $15,000 each and will be awarded to organizations for costs associated with affordable housing or economic development projects. There will be a preference for projects undertaken by small, community-based organizations, as well as mixed-use and/or mixed-income projects incorporating historic preservation, projects serving low- and moderate-income artists, supportive housing for vulnerable families and individuals, and smaller scale projects.
