How SSBCI Programs Work for Small Businesses

Illustration outlining how State Small Business Credit Initiative Programs work, starting with the American Rescue Plan Act which providing $10 billion in federal funding for the SSBCI program. The U.S. Treasury oversees the SSBCI program and administers the funds to the States, Territories, and District of Columbia. These States, Territories, and the District of Columbia then use the funds to develop one or more credit enhancement programs. The credit enhancement programs include Venture Capital, Loan Guarantee, Capital Access, Loan Participation, and Collateral support, and they act as “insurance” for lenders to mitigate risk when borrowers may not meet traditional credit requirements. Specific lenders, including CDFIs and banks, are approved to participate in these credit enhancement programs and are better able to support small businesses with financing. Small businesses apply to be considered for financing from these approved lenders.
