About Us

A Native-run Business

Indian Land Capital Company (ILCC) is a certified Native American Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) providing financing to Native nations for economic development and land acquisition. ILCC grew out of an identified need in Indian Country for financial mechanisms that offered full faith and credit lending options for tribal land purchases. Unlike traditional lending institutions, ILCC responds directly to the financial needs of Native nations. As a Native-run business, ILCC understands and supports tribal sovereignty and recognizes the importance of land to Indian people.

Indianland Landscape

ILCC was created as a collaborative effort between Indian Land Tenure Foundation (ILTF) and Native American Community Development Corporation (NACDC) to bridge the gap in lending to tribes and to facilitate the acquisition of Indian lands for social, cultural and economic purposes. As nonprofit partners of ILCC, ILTF and NACDC can provide technical support and grants to Indian nations for the development of strategic land plans.

Our Mission

  • To help Indian nations recover, manage and gain jurisdiction over 90 million acres of alienated tribal land
  • To assist Indian nations in consolidating undivided interests in land with fractionated ownership
  • To eliminate “checkerboarding” (mixed patterns of land ownership) on Indian reservations
  • To strengthen tribal communities and sovereignty
