About Us

New Jersey Community Capital is a nonprofit community development financial institution that provides an innovative toolkit of financial products, programs and services to advance equity and opportunity in the communities we serve.

Equitable & Inclusive Opportunities

We believe that building healthy, equitable communities requires us to think about capital differently. At NJCC, our work is driven by the fundamental vision entrenched by our founders — to always sustain deep roots in the communities we serve. This calls for a holistic and comprehensive approach to investing in all assets of a strong and healthy neighborhood: safe and stable homes, high-quality education, access to healthy food and green spaces, vibrant main streets with small business opportunities and community spaces that mobilize and engage.


We understand that with opportunity and the capital and the tools to succeed, amazing things can happen.

— Wayne Meyer, NJCC President
