The Southern Opportunity and Resilience (SOAR) Fund is raising $150 million to provide flexible, affordable financing and support services to “the smallest of small businesses” and nonprofits across 15 southern states. The fund will work with CDFIs to deploy capital, targeting historically underbanked owners and organizations. LISC is serving as fund manager.
The pandemic has prodded state and local governments to think hard and act quickly to move public money into shoring up the small business sector. An article in Next City looks at how new public-private partnerships—particularly ones engaging CDFIs, like the LISC-managed NY Forward Loan Fund—are paving the way to make equitable small business development part of a new normal.
In the era of Covid-19, connected ecosystems are paying off for small businesses struggling to keep their doors open. Which proves just how critical LISC’s ongoing work to build relationships that support economic development really is, in times of crisis and beyond.
