Community Invest

Home / Invest in Illinois / Community Invest

There are communities throughout Illinois that struggle with unemployment, poverty, affordable housing, and a lack of economic activity. In many instances, individuals, families, and community organizations in these areas can empower themselves – and stimulate economic activity in their communities – with increased access to low-cost loans. 


Community Invest is a consumer-focused loan impact investment program. Through Community Invest, the Treasurer’s Office partners with approved financial institutions to provide community loans – either lower rate loans, or loans to individuals and families that would not otherwise qualify – to facilitate capital to underserved communities. In doing so, the Treasurer’s Office seeks to boost economic activity in Illinois while earning a competitive return for the State.
