What We Do

Focus on the Needs of Tribes

Navajo WomanRebuilding and strengthening the tribal land base is a top priority for many Indian nations. ILCC was established specifically to address this need by providing loans to tribes for land acquisition. In addition to lending options, ILCC extends land acquisition planning assistance to its clients. The sum is a full service offering not available to tribes through other channels.

Customized, Flexible Lending

ILCC works closely with tribal governments to design customized loan packages that suit the needs of the tribe and the unique circumstances of the land purchase. Unlike mainstream financial institutions, ILCC does not require Indian nations to use the purchased land as collateral to back the loan. Instead, ILCC encumbers alternative streams of income, including businesses and land revenue. This allows the tribe to process land purchases much more quickly and efficiently and avoid costly legal fees.
