Ready to scale your innovative housing solution? We can help.

It’s time to bring the most promising housing and health programs to create lasting benefits for even more communities in Detroit. As a human and social service provider working in Detroit, you know firsthand how hard it can be to find the resources to implement and scale solutions that advance your community mission. Building a budget through donor fundraising and chasing grants is resource- and time-intensive, often comes with strings attached, and can fall short of what you really need to make your program work.

A new partnership between the Quicken Loans Community Fund, the City of Detroit Department of Housing and Revitalization, and the outcomes-based capital firm Quantified Ventures is addressing this challenge. Through this new financing approach that connects outcomes with payments, we are helping Detroit service organizations tap into alternative funding streams—with more flexibility and the resources needed to scale.

To help secure this capital, we are providing free transaction consulting services to at least one local organization, enabling them to finance growth based on anticipated success.

We are currently soliciting proposals for holistic and innovative housing programs that, absent capital, do not have a viable path to full implementation and scale. Through this initiative, we will provide free transaction structuring services to develop investor-ready deals, and bring all parties to the table.
