State Small Business Credit Initiative Portal

Program Overview

The State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI), part of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, was funded with $1.5 billion to bolster state programs supporting small business lending. States may use SSBCI funds to support programs that leverage private lending to help finance creditworthy small businesses. Permissible programs include Capital Access Programs, loan guarantee programs, and venture capital funds.

CDFA continues to support states with SSBCI and other access to capital program needs by offering webcasts, resources, and technical assistance. As part of this ongoing effort, CDFA created the CDFA SSBCI Webinar Series, a dedicated five-part educational offering specifically addressing this innovative program.

The CDFA SSBCI Portal provides an accessible interface for program information and materials in the CDFA Online Resource Database.
