There are many barriers and reasons why banks are reluctant to lend to families living on Indian reservations – every day we work with tribes and our allies to overcome those barriers! Native Capital Access is certified by the U.S. Department of the Treasury as a Native Community Development Financial Institution (Native CDFI). We are a private, non-profit corporation helping to meet the financing needs of American Indian communities primarily but not exclusively in Arizona and New Mexico. We provide technical assistance and loans for tribal projects and Native-owned small businesses. We envision the day that Indian communities have equal access to private sector funds for community- and economic development.
