Lisa Jones stood up and now directs a Treasury Department bond program that has resulted in $852 million in loans to low-income communities since 2013, at no cost to taxpayers. By making long-term capital available at lower borrowing costs, underserved communities have been able to finance small businesses, affordable rental housing, day care centers, senior living facilities, charter schools and health care facilities.
