WBD Growth Fund
The WBD Growth Fund raises capital for businesses located in Wisconsin's low income communities. An allocation of $65 million (awarded $30 million in 2008 and $35 million in 2009) under the New Market Tax Credits Program through the US Department of Treasury allowed the WBD Growth Fund to focus on larger businesses willing to create opportunity and invest in Wisconsin's most underserved areas. This award resulted from WBD's strong track record of successful service to businesses located in both urban and rural areas. New Market Tax Credit loans will target businesses located in low income communities and will improve opportunities available to Wisconsin's workforce.
