Native Capital Access In 2012 RCAC entered into a promising partnership with Native Capital Access a Native Community Development Financial Institution. RCAC already has a long history of providing technical expertise to Tribal communities. This unique collaboration was a chance to expand its efforts to bring affordable housing to Tribes. Similarly Native Capital Access has strong leadership expertise staff and consultants but it still faced size and capital constraints. Both organizations hoped to increase the capital they provide for critical infrastructure housing and community facilities on Tribal lands. Together RCAC and Native Capital Access also developed The Tribal Housing Excellence THE Academy an effective training and technical assistance program that helps build Tribal housing organizationshousing development capacity. Collaboration Our collaboration with RCAC is deep and wide Its so meaningful to be able to talk and strategize with leaders.
