Women & Minorities Loan Program

NYBDC is committed to providing women and minorities access to business financing. Through our outreach programs, we participate regularly in business seminars and conferences for minority and women-owned businesses. The NYBDC staff regularly reaches out to community organizations to help identify potential borrowers and work aggressively to meet their needs.

With specialized programs (e.g. SBA's Community Advantage Loan Program) and outreach initiatives (e.g. The Brooklyn Fund), NYBDC is here to work with you and help you get the financing your business needs.

Minority and women-owned businesses can access short-term loans through NYBDC's participation in New York State's "Bridge to Success" loan program.

The "Bridge to Success" loan program will invest at least $20 million to expand access to short-term bridge loans for Minority and Women owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs). The program will provide qualified MWBEs with the resources they need to participate in the up to $1 billion in contracting opportunities with New York State.
