Community Capital works to use capital creatively to enhance the economic well-being of our communities and those who live in them.
“We are very grateful to the Hudson Gateway REALTOR® Association for their support. This grant will be particularly helpful to us in the City of Middletown, where we are working with City officials to help realize the promise of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative, “said Kim Jacobs, President & CEO of Community Capital New York. “Middletown was selected in 2016 as the first City in the MidHudson Region to be selected to receive $10 million from NYS to revitalize the downtown area. Community Capital is working with local business and building owners to help renew this terrific City.”
Established in 2004 and relaunched in 2013, the HG REALTOR® Foundation has donated thousands of dollars to charities and non-profits throughout the Hudson Valley.
