Economic Equity Investment Program (EEIP)

Background & Overview

The Northwest Native Chamber (NWNC), with the support of Business Oregon, is launching our Economic Equity Investment Program (EEIP). This program was designed to support a cohort of six Native American businesses throughout Oregon to identify and facilitate strategic high-value capital purchases. EEIP is intended to support ongoing or new capital acquisitions that will increase the scope and sustainability of Native-owned businesses while building intergenerational wealth. These high-value capital investments will be primarily used for down payment assistance, equipment purchase, land purchase, and more.
We will be awarding six Native-owned businesses in Oregon with up to $100k in capital support for these acquisitions. In addition to capital acquisition, all awardees will receive one-on-one technical assistance (TA) as a wraparound support, in areas such as business plan development, marketing, financial practices, and more. NWNC’s contracted professional service providers will support this cohort with credit and capital coaching, legal assistance, and real estate consulting.

EEIP Applications are closed, and funds have been awarded
