North Miami Community Investment Cooperative

The North Miami Community Investment Cooperative (NM-CIC) will allow North Miami residents to cooperatively own and operate a commercial property. In the first phase, Catalyst Miami will facilitate the purchase and initial management of the commercial real estate, including making infrastructural repairs and managing commercial tenant relations. Then, Catalyst Miami will oversee the process of selling the property back to individual members of the surrounding community.

The NM-CIC opens up investment opportunities to working-class residents, who will ultimately be the property owners—especially as development increases in the area. The initiative also supports the local economy by leasing spaces to local businesses (the property's tenants) and offering them technical assistance through our small business services.

The NM-CIC project provides a demonstration of community-level economics that supports equitable wealth-building, collective ownership, and stabilization instead of displacement.
