CDFA-ARI Rural Finance Webinar Series: Tools, Programs, and Opportunities Within Rural America

Responses to the COVID-19 pandemic continue to be developed. We have seen several new tools and programs launched including the Paycheck Protection Program and the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program. As the situation evolves, so too will the way that development finance tools can assist in helping rural America recover. During the second installment of the CDFA-ARI Rural Finance Webinar Series, we continued to explore what responses and resources are available to reduce the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on rural America.
