Investing with Impact

NCIF supports locally-owned enterprises in central Appalachia and the Southeast that create lasting jobs and community wealth, while using natural resources responsibly or providing vital community services.

We measure and report annually on the environmental, community and economic impacts that NCIF’s portfolio companies achieve. These vary from company to company and region to region, but include creating and retaining jobs; utilizing natural resources responsibly; and supporting sustainable economic development.  Our loans help build local food systems work;  reinvest in main streets; reduce energy and waste; provide eco-friendly access to the out doors; care for community residents; and much more.
