Capital and Technical Assistance Strategies to Support Minority Small Businesses in the Central Valley
October 28, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation is convening a “Capital and Technical Assistance Strategies to Support Minority Small Businesses in the Central Valley” webinar on October 28, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Minority small businesses have limited options accessing flexible micro-business loans – a critical need when wealth is limited – and technical assistance that facilitate their formation, development, and growth. This webinar will encourage the development of new loan products and partnerships with CDFIs and CBOs to expand micro-business credit and business consulting services for minority small businesses in the Central Valley.
Presenters will highlight innovative products, programs, and services that demonstrate best practices supporting racial equity and minority small businesses. Participating stakeholders will be able to identify targeted product strategies and potential CRA partnership opportunities that enable increased lending to minority small businesses.
Target audience: Banks (Credit Administrators, Senior Lenders, Commercial Loan Officers, Chief Executive Officers, CRA Officers and Compliance Officers) plus asset building coalitions, small business counselors, Small Business Development Centers, Community Development Financial Institutions, and government agencies.
