The Business Loan Fund is here to help you succeed

One of the most important aspects of starting a business is access to capital, and one of the top reasons small businesses fail is because of under capitalization.

The cold hard truth is that no one is sitting around waiting to give you money for your brilliant idea.  You’ve got to have skin in the game and come to the table with your own money or be willing to put your worldly possessions on the line to give your idea wings.   


Region 10’s Business Loan Fund

Region 10’s Business Loan Fund (BLF) is a lending source that provides capital to small businesses focusing on expansion, creating and retaining jobs, and benefiting our growing regional economy. For more than 30 years, the BLF has assisted for-profit and nonprofit businesses with their financing needs with loans that typically range from $5,000 to $250,000 with up to 10-year terms.

COVID Business Grant Relief

In 2020 and 2021, Region 10 helped to manage over 300 grant applications for small businesses within 4 counties in our region. We helped to disburse almost $5 million dollars in COVID relief to small businesses.
