FCLF Meeting Our Mission

The Florida Community Loan Fund Mission: Our expertise and capital make projects successful and help organizations improve lives and communities.

How are we meeting the FCLF mission? Here are a few ways…

FCDA Annual Training Conference, April 25-28 in Lake Mary, Florida. Will you be attending this statewide gathering of community development and economic development practitioners? If yes, we’ll see you there! FCLF staff will share our expertise and information on flexible financing to help your community, both in the Marketplace Exhibit area and at a session on Thursday, April 27. If you haven’t planned to attend, it’s not too late!
Visit the FCDA conference website here for more information and how to register.

​FCLF provides flexible financing for community and economic development in Florida's low-income communities, providing positive social impact and helping projects succeed. Through 12.31.2016, we financed 260+ projects through $278 million in financing, into total projects of $877 million.

But what these words and numbers really convey is: we are helping to change lives. Here's a peek at 3 recent FCLF loan closings. 

FCLF and Debbie Turner Cancer Care and Resource Center

Debbie Turner Cancer Care and Resource Center provides counseling for cancer victims and families, but that’s just a part of their services. Volunteers help with needs ranging from hair styling to rides to the grocery store and pharmacy. FCLF provided $315,000 in financing to purchase 2 buildings.

“With help from FCLF we are able to continue services to cancer families and children.” – Debbie Turner, Founder & Executive Director
