Why Work With Community Investment Corporation

Expertise, Dedication, Mission-Driven.

When you choose a lending partner, you are entrusting your client to their care.  At CIC we respect the trust relationship and we work hard to earn that trust with every client we serve.  At the end of the day, our goal is to meet your expectations and provide superior customer service to your client.  Here’s how we do it: 

Our Expertise Makes the Process Efficient

CIC brings decades of SBA expertise to every loan transaction.  We are both a partner and an SBA resource.  Whether you are a seasoned SBA program user or an SBA newbie, we are here to answer questions and manage the SBA process.  Like you, our success is measured by the number of quality deals we get across the finish line, so it goes without saying – we use our SBA skills to get each loan approved and closed as quickly as possible.  

We are Dedicated to Your Success

Since 1973, CIC has been dedicated to assisting small businesses that have great ideas and need more power to grow them.  That power to grow comes not only from the money we lend, but also from the business advice we can provide.  Whether you are a Banker, a CPA, a Realtor, or an Economic Development professional, every client referral to CIC represents an opportunity for your client to secure financing from our specialty programs and to get the guidance they need to succeed.  

Our Mission is to Provide Opportunities

CIC is an engine for economic growth in Connecticut and Rhode Island.  Because we are mission-based, we continually reinvest excess income from our SBA 504 Program to support our Community Lending programs that provide opportunity to small businesses, create jobs, and build our local economies.


All CIC programs are extended to the public on a non-discriminatory basis.  Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made if requested one week in advance by calling (203) 776-6172 ext 120.
