CDFIs and the State Small Business Credit Initiative: Status Report
Issue Date: 2013-03-01

The State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI) was created in the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, and implemented by the Obama Administration starting in 2011. The program provided $1.5 billion in funding to strengthen state programs that support lending to small businesses and small manufacturers. In the legislation, Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) are specifically listed as eligible lenders. Increasingly, state governments are looking to CDFIs as partners to deploy SSBCI funding and increase the amount of credit available to small businesses and small manufacturers in their states.
