District of Columbia Collateral Support Program

The District of Columbia Collateral Support Program is part of the US Treasury’s State Small Business Credit Initiative created by the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010. The Treasury has allocated $1.5 billion nationally to create or expand small businesses, with $13.2 million for District businesses. The Department of Insurance, Securities and Banking will use the money for several small business finance programs. The DC Collateral Support Program is the first.

Participating lenders and DISB provide capital to small businesses with insufficient collateral for a loan by depositing cash collateral with lenders (bank, credit union or community development financial institution), who in turn, loan to these businesses. Creditworthy small businesses can use these loans to buy equipment and inventory; for expansions or renovations; working capital; start-up costs; leasehold improvements; or refinancing. By leveraging the capital of private lenders, the program makes more capital available to District small businesses.

Start by contacting a participating lender to learn more about the program.
