MCBC’s Small Business/Economic Development Committee

Bringing together financial institutions, small business assistance providers, city and state agencies and others to promote the economic revitalization of low- and moderate-income communities in Massachusetts by providing insight, ideas and information designed to encourage small business lending and growth.

In November 2016, the Committee released MCBC’s sixteenth study of small business lending patterns. The report, Small Business Lending in Massachusetts, 2007-2015, provides an analysis of 2015 small business lending across the state with an emphasis on lower-income and traditionally underserved areas. The report also reviews changes in economic conditions and other factors that effect small business lending. In addition to the data in the report, MCBC is also providing data on all Massachusetts cities and towns in a set of on-line tables. The report and its appendix are available in the Publications section of this website.
