The California Rebuilding Fund is a novel approach to financing. It is a public-private partnership that leverages government-backed capital with private equity to provide a standardized, low-interest loan to small business owners of color, women and business owners in rural areas.


Please join Calvert Impact Capital, Kiva, California Association of Microenterprise Opportunity (CAMEO) and Small Business Majority to learn how the Fund fits into your region's economic development efforts. During this event, we will also hear from city representatives to learn how they leveraged the Fund to provide interest-free and low-interest loans to entrepreneurs in their community.


Topics of discussion include:

  • Overview of the Fund
  • How the Fund works
  • How local governments can participate in the Fund
  • How local governments can support small business owners

A question and answer portion will follow.
