Economic Development Loans (Revolving Loan Fund)

The City’s Revolving Loan Fund provides loans to businesses for start-ups and expansions, resulting in more jobs for low- and moderate-income persons.

The Revolving Loan Fund is used as a supplement to private funding for businesses conducting start-ups and expansions. These low-interest loans generate a job for each $35,000 loaned. This program reduces the incidence of poverty in the City by developing jobs that must be filled by low- to moderate-income persons (using Wood County Median Income Eligibility Guidelines). The loans are issued at two-thirds of the prime-lending rate on the day of closing. Security is required. It is anticipated that the program will generate new jobs annually for persons at low- to moderate-income levels.
