Bridgeport Neighborhood Trust
Bridgeport Neighborhood Trust (BNT) is a community housing development organization that has adopted a comprehensive place-based strategy, the East End Community Building Initiative, focused on revitalization of two commercial corridors in Bridgeport’s East End. This neighborhood once struggled with some of the highest crime rates in the city, but is making a comeback thanks to strategic investments of this kind. C4C has provided nearly $1 million in financing to several projects related to this comprehensive revitalization initiative which will restore buildings to functional use, construct new housing, reduce blight and provide much needed affordable and energy-efficient places to live for low-income residents. Since 2010, C4C has provided nearly $4 million in financing to BNT developments throughout Bridgeport. Their mission is consistent with C4C’s lending mission - to collaborate with key partners and finance impactful change in low- to moderate- income communities.
