Small Business Banking Partnership


From our local business to your local business.

Enabling more small businesses to acquire funding for expansions, new equipment, capital improvement, and other financing needs.

Initiated in May 2011 by Treasurer Steve Grossman, the Small Business Banking Partnership moves deposits into smaller regional, community, and local banks that have demonstrated leadership in providing capital to creditworthy small businesses to help them expand and create new jobs. The partnership reinvests Treasury deposits into community banks, who in turn promise to increase their small business loan portfolios.
