LISC/Chicago and the LISC New Markets Support Corporation invite you to
a special presentation and discussion to learn about a new financing tool for small businesses in your community.

Small business loans can be difficult to come by in this economic climate. The National Equity Fund (NEF) and LISC, in cooperation with Morgan Stanley, have developed a small business loan fund to address this challenge.

The LISC/Morgan Stanley Small Business Loan Fund provides small businesses in New Market Tax Credit (NMTC) eligible communities with long-term, fixed-rate financing to acquire or improve fixed assets.
By leveraging the NMTC program with the SBA 504 Program, the LISC New Markets S

· Purchase land, including existing buildings
· Make site improvements, including grading, street improvements, utilities, parking lots and landscaping
