Policy Lecture: Addressing Capital Access in Underserved Communities

Food for Thought – Addressing Capital Access in Underserved Communities

Innovative and holistic financial solutions are needed to address the short-term impacts of Covid-19 on already disenfranchised and underserved communities throughout the US, but notably in the US South. Calvert Impact Capital and Winrock International are working  together with community lenders in the South to provide economic recovery loans to small businesses in their communities at a time when they are facing unprecedented health and economic challenges. The loans are designed to reach the smallest of small businesses and those that have been historically underbanked through an innovative blended finance structure funded by grants and investment capital. This capital is coupled with new models of technical assistance to provide long-term sustainable impact to these communities.
