THIS MONTH’S MEMBER SPOTLIGHT:
In April, LRC unveiled a new look and simplified name, but their focus on changing communities remains the same. A U.S. Treasury-certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), LRC offers strategic lending solutions to small businesses and nonprofits with a bottom line goal to improve Milwaukee’s stressed neighborhoods.
LRC partners with banks, grantors, other CDFIs or socially minded investors to provide financing to nonprofit and small business clients — many of which are minority-owned — who otherwise would not be able to access a loan in the traditional market. By helping businesses gain the capital they need to open their doors, purchase new equipment and supplies, or expand services and space, LRC is revitalizing communities throughout Milwaukee. Learn more about them at www.lrcmke.com.
Each month UEDA distributes a newsletter to our Members; the newsletter features articles of interest, upcoming events and updates on the latest issues and events pertaining to community and economic development. It’s a benefit for current UEDA Members and is intended as a tool for Members to gain insight into the UEDA Community. Scroll down to access archived newsletters from the past year.
