FDIC and OCC are collaborating to host a meeting in Illinois that aims to boost capital access for tiny corporations. The meeting will showcase prosperous applications that help below resourced entrepreneurs and highlight the constructive influence of these initiatives. Participants will also discover tactics to overcome challenges in reaching this industry. The occasion will emphasize the advantages for economic institutions, such as possible Neighborhood Reinvestment Act (CRA) consideration. Representatives from the Illinois government, nearby government, and a Neighborhood Improvement Monetary Institution (CDFI) will share insights on the State Tiny Organization Credit Initiative (SSBCI) and other possibilities for financing tiny corporations collaboratively.
The presenters for the meeting incorporate Jo Ann Di Maggio May possibly, Director of IL Metro East Tiny Organization Improvement Center at Southern Illinois University (SIU) Edwardsville and East St. Louis Center, Steve Kuehl, Neighborhood Affairs Officer at OCC, and Glenn Brewer, Neighborhood Affairs Specialist at FDIC.
