About Us

Cincinnati is in the midst of an exciting revitalization. Yet one in three Cincinnatians struggle with poverty and families often have difficulty accessing resources that lead to long-term economic empowerment.

As GreenLight Fund’s second investment in the City of Cincinnati, FII is launching with the additional support of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, SC Ministry, and The Mayerson Foundation. Over the next four years, we will work with community based organizations and other partners to reach 1,000 families in multiple neighborhoods across Greater Cincinnati.  By trusting and investing in families own solutions we expect our families to see economic and social mobility. On average nationally, during two years of engagement with FII, families report: a 23 percent increase in monthly income, 60 percent decrease in subsidies such as TANF and SNAP, a doubling of their annual income and assets, and increased education outcomes from their children.

Get Involved

Thousands of families across the country are shifting long-held perceptions of low-income communities and changing our practice and policy approaches to poverty. Join us as we trust and invest in their initiatives.
