The Fund

About Us

Our goal is to help our community’s businesses and real estate projects to succeed. Not only is it great for the business owners and developers, it’s great for the Northside. Over the past 19 years we have helped the Northside expand by supporting its entrepreneurs and residential community – and we don’t plan to stop providing that support any time soon. 


What We Do

The Northside Community Development Fund is a neighborhood-focused community loan fund serving 14 neighborhoods on Pittsburgh’s Northside. We make the Northside a thriving community for all by promoting economic opportunity and community revitalization. We help under served populations in the 14 neighborhoods of the Northside by providing capital to spur business and job growth, the creation of affordable housing, and the redevelopment of Northside neighborhoods. All of these activities must include opportunities for all members of the community, including racial and ethnic minorities and women.


Why We Do It

The Northside Fund works toward creating a vibrant Northside that offers opportunities for all its residents, for people that work on the Northside and for businesses that are located on the Northside. 


Small Business Financing

Providing capital and training for entrepreneurs, helps generate new opportunities for business and job growth and help business owners create wealth and employment in our neighborhoods.


Affordable Housing

Providing capital to local neighborhood organizations, creates affordable rental housing and affordable for-sale housing, mainly through the rehabilitation of existing vacant and blighted buildings.


Strategic Real Estate Investment

Providing capital to strategically important real estate projects, helps eliminate blight that are locations for new businesses that create high-quality jobs and provide anchors to local neighborhood business districts.
