Local Funding Sources

There are times when banks alone can not provide all the funding needed to finance your business.

“Gap” funding is often the answer. Community partners have loan funds available to help close the gap left by traditional financing.  These funds differ in size of loan, uses of loan dollars and the goals of the community partner.

Details on the funding sources to help promote business growth in our community are listed below:

 Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation

 Region Nine Development Commission

 Blue Earth County
