Community Impact

Impacting the Community Through Finance

At City First, we are focused on building the economic health of underserved communities in the Washington, DC and Mid-Atlantic region. Commercial lending for the development or preservation of affordable housing, the construction or renovation of community facilities and loans for the business operations of small for-profit and non-profit companies remains the center of the City First Bank mission. 

We create significant impact even beyond our direct lending. Our New Markets Tax Credit program has also served as a significant catalyst for economic development through large scale and impactful projects.
