|Community Development Forum:Lending and Investing Opportunities in Montana An Interagency Community Development Event|
The Community Affairs Offices of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, in partnership with the Native American Development Corporation (NADC), are pleased to invite you to a Community Development Forum. The Forum is taking place in conjunction with NADC’s Economic Development and Procurement Conference, and is intended to broaden and deepen partnerships that advance lending and investing in low-and moderate-income (LMI) and Native American communities in Montana. Native and non-Native community development organizations, banks, and small businesses will describe their experiences securing financing for businesses and housing. They will also discuss innovative and ground-breaking models for overcoming barriers to financing and the potential for future growth.
The Forum is designed to increase awareness among bankers, non-profit organization leaders, government and tribal agency staff, elected officials, and others about initiatives ranging from tax credit programs to a gap financing pool, available to support Native American businesses. Banks are strongly encouraged to attend this event to learn about lending and investing opportunities that support safety and soundness criteria. Information about the event is noted below.
