NEWARK, NJ – Corporate Community Connections, Inc. (CCCI) and Kiavi, one of the nation’s largest lenders for real estate investors, are teaming up to help urban and minority real estate investors get the capital they need to revitalize homes across the country. The initiative is launching on Saturday, November 20, at FINfe$t, a financial freedom festival hosted by the dfree® Financial Freedom Movement.
“CCCI is committed to creating connections between corporations and underserved communities in an effort to close the racial wealth gap, one family at a time,” said Dr. DeForest B. Soaries, Jr., CEO of Corporate Community Connections, Inc. “One of CCCI’s main initiatives is the dfree® Financial Freedom Movement, which connects individuals with financial resources and literacy programs, such as the dfree® Online Academy.”
The initiative with Kiavi aims to connect urban real estate investors with the capital they need to purchase and rehab real estate in distressed communities. CCCI has a network of urban real estate investors in cities including Compton, California; Flint, Michigan; Atlanta, Georgia; Newark, New Jersey; Chicago, Illinois, and others.
After connecting with CCCI, real estate investors will go through the dfree® Online Academy for free, then apply for investment property financing through Kiavi’s technology platform.
“Kiavi is on a mission to help people live better through real estate as we help our customers revitalize neighborhoods and rehabilitate homes across the country,” said Michael Bourque, CEO of Kiavi. “We are thrilled to be working with CCCI to provide access to timely capital and our technology platform to help urban real estate investors fulfill their dreams of rehabbing homes and helping their communities.”
