IAC supports Native Youth with Equity Grants
FSA youth loan applicants who work through their Regional TA representative (AK and HI applicants may pick any Regional TA Specialist) and are approved for a loan by the FSA, are eligible for a $500 equity grant from the IAC toward your operation.  This type of opportunity has never been offered before, so we hope you take us up on it. If your loan still needs work, get in touch with us and our staff will come assist. If you’ve already submitted your loan application, make sure you let our Regional staff know, so we can nominate you for the equity grant.
