Requests for Proposals and Qualifications

IFF serves as a turnkey developer to launch community-driven projects. This work bridges the gap between community need and traditional developers’ reach. IFF initiates financing, construction, and leasing of innovative community development projects that fill critical needs – for example, grocery stores in food deserts, business incubators in disinvested communities, and accessible housing for people with disabilities. Below are some opportunities to work with our Development team.
