SSBCI - Overview

State Small Business Credit Initiative

The State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI) was signed into law as part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

Reauthorization of SSBCI is one of the key tenets of CDFA’s Development Finance Solutions for Building Back Better. Based on the input of our 500+ members, CDFA’s policy proposals would allow state and local governments, through development finance agencies, to be immediate problem solvers that can help alleviate the extreme economic challenges facing small businesses and communities to put America securely on the path to recovery.

CDFA thanks everyone who joined our coalition, sent letters, and met with Congress to help get SSBCI signed into law.
