Native Green Loan Fund

A Collaborative Program Related Investment Fund for Foundations, Individual, and Institutional Investors 

The Southwest Native Green Loan Fund is a public-private partnership between the New Mexico Indian Affairs Department (IAD), Native Home Capital, Confluence Philanthropy, and philanthropic entities based in the United States.

The Native Green Loan Fund seeks to leverage some $12 million in annually appropriated state grant funds for tribal infrastructure projects ( i.e. electricity, water, wastewater, etc) by a projected $10 million program-related investment fund. The Native Green Loan Fund augments existing public and private grant programs and provides ‘green’ options to tribal community development projects.  Confluence Philanthropy convenes grantmaking participants in the Fund to leverage philanthropic resources and to collect the collaborative lessons learned.

The Southwest Native Green Loan Fund is suitable for foundation, institutional and individual donors who can invest at least $250,000 in the Fund and who hold a mission that focuses on indigenous peoples; climate and energy; water conservation; rural community development; or ecosystems protection in the Southwest. Loans are made to tribal entities across New Mexico and Arizona, targeting the Navajo, Pueblo, and Apache Nations. Many of the Loan projects will have a green jobs component as well.
