Increasing CDFI Capacity

CornerSquare Community Capital, launched by the NC Rural Center and Truist, the bank that emerged from the BB&T and SunTrust merger, is a new resource for the CDFI sector. Through this innovative program, 100 percent of the funding will be allocated to racially and ethnically diverse small-business owners, women, and individuals in low- and moderate-income communities, with a focus on African American-owned small businesses.
