The Division of Capital Investment (DCI) manages the Indian Loan Guarantee, Insurance and Interest Subsidy Program which helps borrowers secure business ﬁnancing on commercially reasonable terms.
To help Indian tribes and individuals establish and expand Indian-owned businesses, and to encourage self –suﬃciency, Congress passed the Indian Financing Act of 1974. The Act was established to reduce the disparity between business capital available to Indian and non-Indian businesses. The program is open to federally recognized American Indian tribes, Alaska Native groups, individually enrolled members of such tribes or groups, and business organizations with no less than 51 percent ownership by American Indians or Alaska Natives.
The Division of Capital Investment has four zones, Alaska, Eastern, Northwest, and Southwest. Learn more about the program at https://www.bia.gov/as-ia/ieed.
