Miriam Jorgensen and Randall K.Q. Akee. 2017. Access to Capital and Credit in Native Communities: A Data Review. Tucson: Native Nations Institute.
As the second part of a two-part
follow-up to the NALS, this report uses a range of datasets to document the evolution of Native
Communities’ capital access since 2001. Its three main sections summarize data
describing access to capital and credit for Native consumers, Native business owners,
and tribal communities and governments. Its companion document, the “Access to Capital and Credit in Native Communities Report” (ACC Report), published in May 2016,
identifies success stories within a more detailed topical analysis. The full two-part study
is intended to provide research and analysis in support of further improvements in
access to capital and credit in Native Communities.
Miriam Jorgensen presented the preliminary findings of this report at the US Dept. of the Treasury on Feb. 14, 2017. Watch the webcast:
