Community & Business Development

The Community Development Corporation is a tribally chartered nonprofit corporation that provides capital and technical assistance for projects that create a healthy tribal economy through a commercial loan program tailor-packaged to help Native American businesses become more competitive and profitable.

The Business Development Program can assist tribal members lacking financial resources and readiness with business development and planning, managing finances and marketing and contracting.

The Community Development Corporation also works with Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Central Oklahoma to help individual Native Americans and tribal employees develop financial literacy skills when budgeting and managing credit obligations.
