Leviticus Receives $3.25 Million in Combined Federal Awards

Marking the largest federal award in its history, the Leviticus Fund was selected to receive $3.25 million in combined grants and loans from the U.S. Treasury Department's CDFI Fund. A Financial Assistance (FA) award will provide $1.75 million of new resources to support Leviticus' core lending for affordable and supportive housing and community-based facilities, and a Healthy Food Financing Initiative (HFFI) award will provide an additional $1.5 million to support our emerging lending to healthy food-access projects within economically poor communities. 
Financing Supports Opening Day for New Jersey Public Charter School 

The start of the school year signaled opening day for a 346-seat startup public charter public school in Plainfield, New Jersey, supported in part by a working capital line of credit from the Leviticus Fund.

Leviticus' portion of the loan to College Achieve Central Charter School - equaling $225,000 - marks its entry into the financing market of charter public schools.
