The Community Growth Fund & Ways to Work

2 Mar

The Community Growth Fund, a sister organization of PCRG, offers two affordable financing tools:

First, the Community Acquisition and Rehabilitation Loan or, CARL, is a program that provides individuals and families an affordable and simplified loan tool to purchase, renovate, and reside by reclaiming and making new dilapidated housing stock in Pittsburgh’s Low to Moderate Income markets.

Second, a new partnership with Wesley Family Services and their Ways to Work program, which provides small dollar car loans for purchase and repairs of vehicles in order to keep our residents mobile and provide reliable transit to work, family and community functions, recreational activities, and healthy food when public transportation connections are limited.

The Community Growth Fund was recently awarded a generous grant from The Pittsburgh Foundation to kick start Ways to Work program in order to carry out this important work and keep our residents connected to the workforce.
