Revolving Loan Fund

economicdev_divisionSCPDC operates a Revolving Loan Fund designed to link small businesses to financing solutions. The RLF is funded through a grant from the U. S. Economic Development Administration (EDA), a division of the U. S. Department of Commerce. The program is designed to fill the gaps in financing not provided by conventional means.
