The Detroit Investment Fund (DIF) is a source of private sector financing designed to be a catalyst for investment in Detroit by financing qualified commercial projects and entities to stimulate economic development and job creation.
The DIF provides gap financing intended to leverage owner equity so that the transaction merits traditional bank/senior lender financing. Investments in strategic projects are considered when potential exists for a significant long-term, clear benefit to the economic development of Detroit that would likely not be completed without the DIF.
