Jessie Trice Community Health System

Jessie Trice Community Health System (JTCHS), a nonprofit Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), has served Miami-Dade County since 1967. From its beginnings in a trailer, JTCHS has grown to own and operate 11 Comprehensive Primary Care centers including a 40 bed Women’s Residential Center for substance use, 1 university- and 40 school-based health centers. Clinical outcomes and a focus on reducing healthcare disparities rank JTCHS among the best accredited community healthcare organizations in the nation. With financing from the New Markets Tax Credit Program, Jessie Trice CHS is expanding its Miami Gardens location. The new 15,191 sq-ft facility will serve an estimated 13,400 clients – 92% low-income – with medical, dental, mental health, and pharmacy services. For uninsured or under-insured patients, discounted fees are available on a sliding fee scale.

Jesse Ball Dupont

Renovation of the building, a $23.7 million project, will create or retain 200 permanent and create 186 temporary construction jobs, all of which will earn a living wage. Upon completion in 2015, the re-named Jessie Ball duPont Center will provide increased efficiencies and savings for 12 to 18 area nonprofit organizations that will co-locate in the facility. Rent offered to these area nonprofits will be kept low, calculated just to cover operational costs of the facility.


Florida Community Loan Fund (FCLF) used its New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) to finance a new school facility. FCLF provided a loan for $7.4 million and the credit will allow the ASPIRA project to gain up to $1.5 million in equity at the end of seven years. NCB Capital Impact and U.S. Bancorp Community Development Corporation (USBCDC) provided the debt and equity for this transaction, with NCB as the leveraged lender for $5.8 million and U.S. Bancorp providing $1.6 million in equity.

This project will allow the school to double its enrollment from 300 to 600 students. This project is noteworthy for its financing with a unique partnership among financial services and community development institutions and the federal NMTC Program. NCB Capital Impact provided its expertise in charter school underwriting, construction management and loan servicing. Without the NMTC, the school would not have been able to afford a new building with this amount or quality of space.

CASA of St. Petersburg
