Peters welcomes announcement of more capital for companies


U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) today welcomed the announcement by the U.S. Treasury Department of an allocation of nearly $ 36 million to Michigan communities under the Institutions’ Rapid Response Program Community Development Fund (CDFI RRP). These resources will provide the necessary capital for CDFIs to respond to the economic challenges caused by the pandemic, particularly in underserved communities.

“I am proud to have helped secure this COVID relief funding that will help communities in need across our state as they strive to rebuild after this pandemic.” said the senator Peters. “These funds will support financial institutions that can help small businesses keep their doors open, families make ends meet, and communities of color and underserved areas hit hard by COVID. I will continue to do all I can to help minority communities and small businesses rebuild better.

“We congratulate Michigan credit unions for receiving funding under CDFI’s rapid response program,” said Patty Corkery, president and CEO of the Michigan Credit Union League. “The grants will allow these credit unions to continue to have an incredible and transformative impact on the people, businesses and communities they serve, and we appreciate the work of Senator Peters to help secure this funding.”
