The State Small Business Credit Initiative
The State Small Business Credit Initiative examines how the U.S. as a whole and how the states that comprise the Federal Reserve’s Eighth District—Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee—met the financing needs of small businesses located in low- and moderate-income and rural areas.
Community Investment Explorer
The Community Investment Explorer (CIE) interactive tool aggregates customizable data from the Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI), New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) and Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) programs to show geographic comparisons and trends over time.
The CIE draws on data from more than 500,000 community development transactions. Collectively, these programs are responsible for billions of dollars of investment into low- and moderate-income communities each year.
