Delta Community Capital Initiative (DCCI)

Purpose of the Program:
The purpose of the Delta Community Capital Initiative (DCCI) is to support local rural nonprofits and Federally Recognized Indian tribes serving the Lower Mississippi Delta for lending and investing activities in businesses lending and economic development, and for securing

additional sources of public and private capital for these activities.

DCCI’s goal is to increase access to capital for business lending and development in the chronically underserved and undercapitalized Lower Mississippi Delta Region.

Specifically, it will provide direct investment and technical assistance to community development lending and investing institutions so that funding opportunities will be more effective and economic development services will expand to the underserved residents of Lower Mississippi Delta Region.

DCCI will focus on helping local financial institutions improve their capacity to raise capital, and to lend and invest in local communities.

Strengthening local community development lenders and investors will also widen the channels through which larger private institutions and federal agencies can reach small business owners and entrepreneurs who need their support.
