Key Features:

A typical capital corporation has a revolving-loan capital fund from which it offers secured term loans. Variation among the corporations allows them to be sensitive to the needs of local and regional market conditions. Services may vary, but capital corporations generally offer loan guarantees, operating loans, and technical and advisory services. A goal for ACCs is to access business resources and increasingly lever capital from commercial sources, then continue to see it invested and re-invested in Native communities.
