Transforming Neighborhoods

Building America CDE, Inc., works to revitalize low-income communities and create needed jobs, including union construction jobs, through investments in commercial development, affordable housing, and healthcare facilities. Certified as a community development entity (CDE), Building America makes use of New Markets Tax Credits (NMTCs) to attract equity investors for these high-impact development projects.

Building America is a wholly owned subsidiary of the AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust (HIT), a $4.8 billion investment company with nearly 50 years’ experience financing community development. The HIT and Building America have a shared vision of community revitalization and the technical expertise to bring complex projects to reality. Our work builds on the efforts of the American labor movement to improve the quality of life for people with limited economic means.
