Access to Capital and Credit in Native Communities
Jan. 1, 2016
This report emerges from the Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund’s commitment to helping Native Communities develop through increased access to capital. The ideas presented are grounded in an understanding of current economic conditions in Native Communities and in established research concerning the drivers of economic change in Native nations. They also reflect voices from the field, a key aspect of the research methodology.
Access to Capital and Credit in Native Communities: A Data Review, a companion report, provides further analysis of the datasets presented in this report.
