Ms. CAMEO Goes to Washington

Heidi is in DC this week talking about responsible business lending with colleagues from the Responsible Business Lending Coalition – Joyce Klein from Aspen Institute, CAMEO board member Louis Caditz-Peck from Lending Club, Gabe Villarreal from Opportunity Fund, and Renee Johnson from Small Business Majority. They talked about why disclosure is so important and the challenges they overcame when passing SB 1235 last year. Read more about her trip to the capital in her blog post.

The President’s Budget

The President’s FY2020 Budget was released on Monday, giving SBA a 5% cut in overall funding. While the Budget’s plans for the Microloan Program and SBDCs are encouraging, the elimination of the CDFI Fund’s programs and the overall decrease in funding are troubling. For more details on the funds requested for SBA, read our latest blog post.
