Small Business Loans
GLCAP offers multiple loan programs that can help small businesses get off the ground, improve or expand. Loans are tailored to specific small business needs.
Low-interest loans are currently available via the Household Water Well Program for rural residents in need of water well improvements. Through the Great Lakes Rural Community Assistance Program (RCAP), residents may borrow up to $11,000 for improvements to water wells and in-home water treatment systems. Loans carry an interest rate of 1 percent; loan maturity may not exceed 20 years and depends on the borrower’s repayment ability.
Rural LISC has recently given a renewal grant to Great Lakes Community Action Partnership (GLCAP) to continue supporting GLCAP’s work in pursuing program needs for northwest Ohio communities.
