Our Mission

To be a catalyst for investments in capital and resource starved communities in Kansas City through the delivery of innovative financing products, targeted small business and economic development programming, and the development of strategic partnerships that promote economic growth and empowerment.

 
 
 

Our Purpose

AltCap exists to increase the flow of capital to communities and businesses not adequately served by mainstream financial institutions.  Whether it is through the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) Program, small business and microloans, or any of our other alternative capital sources, AltCap is committed to deliver financing to support job creating small business investments and catalytic, community-focused real estate development projects in our service area.

 
 
 

Our Service Area

Our service area encompasses the Kansas City metro area with a specific focus on Jackson, Clay, Platte, and Cass counties in Missouri and Wyandotte, Johnson, and Leavenworth counties in Kansas.
