Educational Technical Assistance
The Credit Access Campaign includes educational, technical assistance and policy initiatives with partner organizations. IFA leaders will speak at franchise and lending-related events throughout the country on the advantages of franchise lending, and to better educate and develop stronger relationships between franchisors, franchisees and lenders. A Joint Working Group will also advocate for pro-business, pro-lending legislative and regulatory policies, including dialogue with the Federal Deposit Insurance Commission and with federal lawmakers. IFA-supported “Discovery Days” will aid lenders in learning more about franchise brands and the wide-spread support they offer to franchisees to enable their ongoing success.
