Community Investment Loan Fund

The Community Investment Loan Fund is a partnership between First 5 Ventura County and the Economic Development Collaborative (EDC). It provides below-market financing for developing licensed quality child care and preschool facilities for Ventura County children. Loans may be used for the planning, construction, expansion and rehabilitation of new or existing licensed childcare and preschool centers. For more information about the EDCs loan programs, please contact Marvin Boateng at (805) 384-1800 x9158 or


Funds donated will be used to purchase books for children to build their home libraries. The books will be distributed through our Take 5 and Read to Kids event each year in May.
