NuProject launched mission-based loan funding in 2020 to support the growth of diverse-owned, Portland-based cannabis businesses. 

The loans are funded by City of Portland cannabis taxes as directed by a voter-passed ballot amendment to invest cannabis tax revenue into the communities disproportionately harmed in Oregon by cannabis criminalization – Black, Indigenous and Latina/o/x. 

Loan terms are flexible and interest rates are below prime. We don’t check credit.
