Direct Community Investment Program

Direct Community InvestmentThe Catholic Health Initiatives Direct Community Investment Program provides low-interest loans to organizations that give disadvantaged populations access to jobs, housing, education and health care.

Since 1999, the program has invested more than $44 million in the services and initiatives of organizations in the United States and elsewhere.


The objective of the Direct Community Investment Program is to maximize social good while ensuring that the funds loaned are secure.  Interest rates charged on these loans are below market and vary according to the circumstances of the recipient.


CHI is committed to providing two percent of its total operating investment program assets as direct community investments.

  • Certificate of Deposit or Linked Deposit
  • Collateral Support for a Loan

Applications may be submitted at any time.  The social responsibility investment staff committee of Catholic Health Initiatives reviews applications once each quarter.
