Senator John Hickenlooper(D-CO)has introduced the  Capital  Cooperatives  Act to help even the playing field for cooperatives working with the Small  Business  Administration.

The Capital for Cooperatives Act would require SBA to change regulations on loan guarantees made to co-ops to ensure that risk is adequately mitigated, without requiring a personal or entity guarantee from borrowers.

NCBA CLUSA, NWCDC, and more than 100 co-op organizations and partners, listed below, are proud to support this legislation. Join us!
