SSBCI Coalition meetings will be held once a month to provide an interactive forum for CDFA members during the State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI) application period. CDFA will facilitate discussions that allow for networking, peer knowledge sharing, and problem solving.
The 2021 American Rescue Plan funded a second round of the successful State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI 2.0) to capitalize new and existing state programs. The application process for $10 billion in formula and competitively allocated funds is in progress. The SSBCI Coalition is proactively at the table to ensure that you are best-positioned to meet the unique needs of local businesses. We are:
- Leading efforts to inform national implementation of SSBCI 2.0
- Providing feedback to Treasury about the needs of members
- Developing the resources and tools that states need to structure competitive SSBCI 2.0 strategies
- Offering opportunities for networking and knowledge sharing
- Delivering insights and breaking-news that all stakeholders will need to maximize SSBCI 2.0 and support economic recovery
After successfully leading advocacy efforts to secure additional funding for the SSBCI program, CDFA is excited to spearhead this nationwide coalition of small business and SSBCI experts and practitioners.
The SSBCI Coalition is available to CDFA Members only. There is no cost to attend SSBCI Coalition meetings.
