The Native Nations Institute at The University of Arizona released a Data Review to accompany the Access to Capital and Credit in Native Communities Report commissioned by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund. The Data Review’s three main sections summarize data describing access to capital and credit for Native consumers, Native business owners, and tribal communities and governments. Its companion document, the Report, identifies success stories within a more detailed topical analysis. The full two-part study is intended to provide research and analysis in support of improving access to capital and credit in Native Communities.
