Stories of Impact



In late 2022, Grow America was awarded funding from the Economic Development Administration (EDA) to lead the creation and operation of a Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) Community of Practice (CoP).  As part of this grant, Grow America delivers a consistent schedule of training programs designed to strengthen the connections between existing RLF network organizations, expand capacity of RLF lending entities, and grow the expertise and impact of the RLF industry. An ongoing series of workshops and virtual training cohorts connect RLF operators with experts in capital development and regional lending consortia.  

To ensure that the highest quality content is provided for this CoP, Grow America is seeking proposals from qualified organizations to partner and deliver content to expand capacity of EDA’s RLF lending entities and grow the expertise and impact of the RLF industry.

This work can include, but is not limited to, presenting topics and creating slides for virtual workshops and conducting virtual cohort classes and reviewing homework assignments. The Training and Resources portion of the RLF Community of Practice is anticipated to deploy from June 1, 2023 and be completed on September 30, 2025.
