Impact Seven is a nonprofit CDFI that was established in 1970 in rural northwestern Wisconsin. It builds capacity in underserved communities throughout the state and beyond, and provides innovative, socially-motivated investments and services. Impact Seven’s commercial and residential real estate projects revitalize distressed communities through cross-sector partnerships and local involvement. Workable loans, equity investments, and technical assistance from Impact Seven support job sustaining small- and medium-sized businesses unable to secure traditional financing. As Wisconsin’s first New Markets Tax Credits (NMTC) awardee in 2002, the organization today services a $169 million NMTC portfolio. Impact Seven manages a diverse portfolio of quality, affordable housing options for low-income families, including 840 units set aside for elderly persons or persons with disabilities. Projects are located in 55 communities across the state, including many in rural areas and a growing urban portfolio in Milwaukee.
