Social Impact Rating (SIR) + REAPP Impact Rating Tool

This tool integrates BlueHub’s Social Impact Rating (SIR) and REAPP impact rating into a single rating that serves as one of many inputs into BlueHub’s investment process. The SIR component of the tool assesses investment impact using the IMP’s 5 Dimensions of Impact framework. The REAPP component assesses the extent to which an investment may support racial equity – and does so in a way that is more nuanced than considering only staff and service recipient/client demographics. The integrated system takes both of these perspectives on impact into account in assigning a total score to a prospective investment.

REAPP Impact Rating Tool

Developed by BlueHub Capital in collaboration with Impact Frontiers, the REAPP Rating Model allows the results collected from the REAPP survey to be synthesized and translated into a quantitative rating. REAPP (Racial Equity Assessment that is Proactive and Practical) is a tool intended to enable lenders to understand the extent to which projects in their pipelines may support racial equity – and to do so in a way that is more nuanced than considering only staff and service recipient/client demographics.

REAPP Introduction + Survey Questions

Designed by BlueHub Capital, REAPP (Racial Equity Assessment that is Proactive and Practical) is a tool that enables lenders to understand the extent to which projects in their pipelines may support racial equity. Catherine Dun Rappaport developed REAPP in deep consultation with impact investing practitioners, community activists, researchers, and policymakers who are themselves and/or work to support people of color. While REAPP is evolving, BlueHub is glad to share it through Impact Frontiers with the broader field of practitioners seeking to support racial equity through investment.
