The MMDC can help borrowers finance their business purchases and/or operations via two separate revolving loan funds (RLFs). While our original RLF provides gap financing to help businesses, including higher-risk borrowers – those with less collateral or credit – address financing shortfalls, our CARES Act Supplemental RLF gives us the ability to act as the primary lender.

The MMDC Economic Development Director will work with potential borrowers to explain loan terms, which are approved by the U.S. Economic Development Administration, and help them determine which RLF option is right for them.
