Join Woodstock Institute for a public briefing on small business lending: Patterns of Disparity: Small Business Lending in Fresno and Minneapolis- St. Paul Regions. The public briefing will take place at 11AM to noon (CST) Thursday, November 2, 2017, via phone.
The report examines the state of traditional bank small business lending in Fresno County, CA, and Minneapolis - St. Paul, MN. It offers policy and practice recommendations concerning the noted disparities in lending to businesses in low- and moderate-income neighborhoods and in communities of color. It is the fourth, and final, in a series of research reports examining small business owners’ access to capital in eight major metropolitan areas.
The public briefing will feature the report’s author, Spencer Cowan, speaking about his methods and findings, as well as testimonials from small business owners. Invitees, in addition to the general public, include advocacy organizations, CDFIs in the small business finance sector, media, and regulators.
Woodstock would like to thank our partners from California Reinvestment Coalition, Main Street Alliance, and People's Action Institute for their partnership in this project.
