"Investment" Money is Provided as Loans
Money is provided as loans to launch or expand small businesses, create more affordable housing, purchase land for community spaces — all the ingredients of healthy, safe environments, for family of all ages. These loans are often focused on minority, women, and veteran-owned ventures, and build on existing efforts in a community. For example, in the Twin Cities, Ours To Own is helping to create and grow new businesses and services along a major expansion of the light rail system, which is addressing chronic commuting challenges for residents. As we pool our resources to invest in American businesses, we begin to see communities connect, and come to life.
