LOAN IMPACT

“I will continue to push more people to work with BBIF. My company was in business for ten years prior to working with BBIF, but they gave me the support to take it to the next level. I don’t know where my company would be at this time if it were not for them.”

– Fabian Cook, CEO, Grassland Enterprises

NEW MARKET TAX CREDITS

BBIF supports NMTC projects located in economically distressed, high-minority population areas based on job creation, job quality, job accessibility, the impact the project will have on the local community, and its alignment with the community’s development priorities. These projects must demonstrate that they will improve the quality of life for current residents.
