Financing

From small business loans and venture capital to tax credits, CEI offers business financing products to meet the capital needs of a broad range of customers and projects, including job-creating small, micro and medium businesses, natural resource industries, community facilities, affordable housing and mixed use and industrial real estate.

CEI reaches out to people and industries with historically limited access to credit. Special programs are available for natural resource and environmental projects with an emphasis on farming, fisheries, waterfront, forestry and renewable energy ventures.  Women business owners, refugees, immigrants and other non-traditional entrepreneurs are a priority.
