Business Microloan Fund
The Economic Development Authority for the City of Elk River (EDA) recognizes the need to stimulate private sector investment into manufacturing and certain commercial facilities and equipment in order to create new jobs, boost productivity and retain existing jobs for local residents. Additionally, the need exists to encourage investment in the expansion and/or rehabilitation of commercial and retail buildings in order to maintain the economic viability of the city and in the Downtown District. Subsequently, the purpose of this microloan program is to provide low interest, long-term (i.e. greater than one year) loans as incentives for new industrial and commercial development within the City of Elk River and to encourage commercial and retail business owners in the Downtown District to rehabilitate their existing buildings.
