The Low Income Investment Fund's (LIIF's) mission is poverty alleviation, and its programs promote
economic advancement and self-sufficiency for the very poor. As a national community development
financial institution (CDFI), LIIF works to accomplish its mission by providing capital resources
and technical assistance for affordable housing, child care, education, public policy and other
community building initiatives. In so doing, LIIF provides a crucial link between community-based
development organizations, capital markets and other sources of financing.
