The desire to make things better is what drives CBO Financial.

By understanding the challenges faced by project sponsors working in low-income communities, and by building strong relationships with them, CBO is able to fill a need for a sector that banks either ignore or perceive as high-risk.

CBO is dedicated to funding projects that will help to revitalize the nation’s most disadvantaged communities. We work throughout the United States and its territories including Puerto Rico, Guam, and the USVI; in fact we were the first to fund New Markets Tax Credit transactions in Puerto Rico, and recently took a leadership role in helping a Guam-based client secure an allocation award.

CBO has taken a leadership role in the investment of over $1 billion into low-income communities nationwide. While this number is significant, we believe our greatest achievements lie in the lives we have helped transform. A single mother on her way to a new career and a more secure life for her family. An ex-convict given a second chance and sharing it with others. And a child discovering that his future can shine brighter beyond the streets.

In the past, CBO’s investments have primarily focused on national nonprofit organizations providing community services such as education, health care, arts, and child care programs. Recently, CBO has broadened its focus by including projects committed to bringing healthy foods to low-income communities through investment in food-related projects.

CBO is continually seeking new investment opportunities within low-income communities in the United States and its territories. We’d love to work together to transform your community. Email us at info@cbofinancial.com or call us at 410-730-0490 so we can get started.
