22 people attended the May 2, 2016 convening of the Financing Crosscutting Team. The focus was identifying and addressing capital gaps. A springboard was a report completed by the VT Working Lands Enterprise Board (WLEB) that identified gaps, suggested tools, and included blueprints for such tools. A panel shared findings from both this blueprint report and also The Carrot Project’s recent program evaluation process. Since the meeting, two of the panelists have moved forward with pilot loan programs informed by the blueprints.
