Making the most of SSBCI

November 18, 2021

The U.S. Department of the Treasury will be meeting with SSTI members on Nov. 22 to discuss the State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI). States, venture development organizations and numerous other tech-based economic development entities around the country are looking for information on how to best use the program to effectively support small business capital access in their regions. SSTI has produced multiple resources to aid these efforts, including an introductory video that is available to the general public.

In addition to joining Monday’s meeting, SSTI members can participate in SSTI “office hours” for small group assistance, access additional reports and videos, or receive customized technical assistance (for State and Sustaining level members).

To receive access to these resources, become an SSTI member — you can join online or contact SSTI’s membership director, Susan Niple (niple@ssti.org), to learn more.
