Montana Native American Business Advisor

NADC is a Native American Business Adviser for Montana’s Indian Equity Fund program.  Funded in part through a grant from the Montana Office of Tourism and Business Development.

As a NABA, NADC provides Indian Equity Fund Application assistance primarily to Little Shell tribal members as well as other tribal members throughout the state.

The Indian Equity Fund (IEF) Small Business Grant is a grant to assist a start-up or expanding Native American business in Montana.  Because of the fund’s ability to offer these grants to be used as equity by the recipient, the fund is able to play a unique role in assisting the growth of Native American small business.  This money can be used for a variety of activities such as the purchase of new equipment or the development of a new product line.  A total of $40,000 is available to fund Native American business applications in each of eight tribal nation areas.
