August 12, 2021 –
National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) and NAFOA will host a webinar featuring speakers discussing the new Tribal Government State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI) with speakers from the Department of the Treasury (Treasury).
The webinar will provide information about the SSBCI program, how to file a Notice of Intent, and Treasury will answer participant questions about the program/application process.
Included as a provision in the American Rescue Plan Act, SSBCI funds tribal, state, and territory small business and support programs. SSBCI has at least $500 million allocated for Tribal Nations. To access this funding, Tribal Nations must provide Treasury with a Notice of Intent by August 16, 2021.
