About Us

Formed in 2013, The Community Impact Policy Institute conducts leading research to provide solutions in breaking down barriers to economic well-being. The Institute, and its partners, have conducted groundbreaking analysis and solutions to many pressing needs including building wage and wealth for disadvantaged communities, effects of minimum wage increases, early childhood education, employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities, socially responsible investing, immigration and its impact on the economy, and more.
The Community Impact Policy Institute also provides technical assistance and training, products and hands on support to government agencies and community-based providers working to change their delivery of services and enhance the community integration of people with individuals with barriers to employment.
The Community Impact Policy Institute has been propelling the strategic thinking and analysis behind The Fedcap Group’s work of breaking down barriers to economic well-being. The Community Impact Policy Institute serves as a key strategic planning arm of Fedcap—promoting capacity building, technical assistance, and practice improvement to help improve how government programs are designed and delivered.
