CDT is a unique CDFI with a double-bottom line, dedicated to raising and investing private capital to expand high-quality, affordable housing and high-performing charter schools across the country.

CDT leverages its REIT (real estate investment trust) structure to make long-term, strategic investments that combine strong returns for our investors with added-value focus on social returns for the residents in the communities we serve.
