Native American Bank, a national Native-owned bank, CDFI, and CDE seeks deposits up to $5,000,000 to help fund its growing loan pipeline. The bank recognizes that among the many issues facing Native Americans, the absence of access to financial capital and services has been a significant obstacle toward the realization of self-sufficiency and financial freedom across Indian Country.

Native American Bank seeks to work with these borrowers to help achieve self-sufficiency and economic development in some of the most impoverished parts of the United States. To accomplish this, the CDFI concentrates on pooling Indian economic resources to increase Indian economic independence by fostering a climate of self-determination in investment, job creation, and sustainable economic growth.

In 2001, twenty Tribal nations and Alaska Native Corporations set out with a dream “to create a national bank to serve all Native people, communities, governments and enterprises across the country” and established Native American Bank, N.A. As the only Native-owned nationwide financial institution in the country, Native American Bank received an “outstanding” on the most recent Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) exam.
