The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (“DMPED”) is soliciting grant applications from qualified applicants for the Equitable Capital Access Fund Grant Program (the “Program”) pursuant to DC Official Code §2-1225.21.
The purpose of the Program is to fund the operation of a program which serves to increase access to liquidity for small businesses, in particular those majority-owned by persons who have experienced historic discrimination in accessing capital, and/or those located in Ward 5, Ward 7, or Ward 8, through administering a bond stop loss program, and providing educational programs which increase financial preparedness, fiscal health, and access to credit issuances for small businesses and the relocation of such a business to Ward 7 or Ward 8 if such a business does not already operate in Ward 7 or Ward 8. The Program will not fund debt or guaranties associated with any bond stop loss program, but instead will support the administration of such programming.
