NFF has loans available for California providers of supportive housing, elder care, behavioral health, and other essential community services.

The "Triple Aim" (higher-quality care, with better health outcomes, at a lower cost) is driving changes across the US health universe, such as shifts to value-based payment models, and partnerships between community-based organizations and hospital systems, particularly in low-income communities.

Community organizations need capital – to expand programs, pilot new care and payment models, upgrade systems and facilities, hire staff, etc. – so they can orient their programs and partnerships to play their crucial role in this revolution.

Maybe your organization is a recuperative-care nonprofit hoping to fight homelessness and hospital and jail readmissions by adding beds as a bridge between the hospital and permanent housing. Or a food-as-medicine nonprofit hoping to partner with a health plan to lower costs and improve outcomes for patients with chronic diseases.

AIM Healthy™, launched in December 2017, offers loans and lines of credit, as well as financial management advice and consulting, to help bridge gaps in capacity and infrastructure. These investments ultimately will yield reduced health disparities and improved health and resilience for low-income individuals and communities.
