Community Investment Explorer 2.0

Introduction | The Tool | About the Data

The newly enhanced Community Investment Explorer (CIE) 2.0 includes more than 73 million transactions totaling over $3.2 trillion in community and economic development capital from 2012 to 2020. The tool can be used to find out where capital is going, how equitably it is being distributed and what purposes it is serving. View demo video with transcript below.

Data are available from 12 community and economic development programs, including the Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund, the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) program and others.

Capital flows are based on project location and shown across four dimensions:

  1. Total funding
  2. Funding in low- and moderate-income communities
  3. Funding in majority nonwhite communities
  4. Use of funds by program

A deeper look at capital flows by neighborhood is available for Little Rock, Ark; Louisville, Ky; Memphis, Tenn.; and St. Louis.
