Welcome to our new website and welcome to Capital Access!
We redesigned our website to help clients, colleagues and friends learn more about what we do, success stories, and provide access to some tools we developed. We want to use this website to convene a discussion of how we can get our communities back to work and achieve a more sustained and shared prosperity.
Since 1995, Capital Access, Inc. has focused on housing to spark the revitalization of neighborhoods. With the $24 million Jefferson Square Mixed-Income Homeownership project in Philadelphia and the $223 million Michigan Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2 Consortium, we have been honored with the opportunity to put big ideas into action. With the “Homeownership Development Toolbox”, the “Scattered-Site Rental Business Planning Guide” and the new “Dashboard for Project and Grants Management” we develop tools to help HUD, state and local governments and community developers improve their housing and redevelopment production systems.
In spring 2012, HUD awarded Capital Access $2.5 million in Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) and One Community Planning and Development (One CPD) Technical Assistance contracts. Capital Access staff will be deployed nationally to help state and local governments and their grantees optimize the impact of their housing and community development programs.
In the past two years Capital Access has grown to a staff of 24 seasoned and nimble housing and redevelopment professionals. We are skilled in helping our clients craft plans, manage programs and develop projects that help revitalize communities for people who earn a range of incomes.
We are grateful to our clients, funders and colleagues for the success we have achieved since 1995. Now, in my role as CEO, citizen, neighbor and father, I am compelled to explore how Capital Access can play a deeper role in re-building the capital base of communities.
The next phase for Capital Access will focus on how we leverage our expertise in neighborhood revitalization and expand our services into economic development. We are fiercely focused on helping our clients to develop the vision, strategies and implementation capacity to help increase employment and improve quality of life in the neighborhoods our clients serve.
Our measurement of success will be when we see neighbors busy with work, tending to their families, and joyfully supporting a shared sense of prosperity in the communities they call home.
