ACT! is a public-private economic action partnership established in 1997 and a Certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) through the U. S. Department of Treasury whose mission is building wealth and creating economic opportunities by providing access to affordable capital and business support services.
ACT! provides financial assistance to small businesses that are not able to access traditional sources of capital. We work in partnership with banks to meet the credit needs of small business owners. Our programs serve to close the financial gap, to make the business owner “whole” financially. We help our banking partners meet their customers’ financial needs by providing “gap funding”. We help support the three prongs that leads to small business success, capital, coaching, and connections.
Since 2000, ACT! has helped small businesses access over $26 Million in capital through direct and private leveraging. ACT! is your small business resource partner. For more information contact us at (229) 420-4600.
