Questions? Call (763)765-4350 or 1-800-438-0575.

County Highlights:

Revolving Loan Fund Program for business
Revolving Loan Funds (RLF) provide businesses with secondary direct loans, loan guarantees and other financial assistance. As the RLF receives the principal and interest from outstanding loans, the money is made available to another borrower. This recycling of funds makes RLFs particularly valuable in light of the growing scarcity of development funds.
