Community-Based Economic Development (CBED)
The CBED Program provides training and capacity building opportunities to promote, support, and invest in community-based development projects that result in measurable economic impact. CBED offers loans to eligible small businesses to develop viable, sustainable business ventures that serve local needs and are compatible with the vision, character and cultural values of their communities. The CBED loan program can support a broad range of small businesses with their loans usually in the range of $50,000 to $125,000.
Enterprise Zones (EZ)
The Enterprise Zones Partnership Program gives State & County benefits to companies in an effort to stimulate business activity, job preservation, and job creation in areas where they are most appropriate or most needed. If your business meets the eligibility requirements and you enroll in the program you can reduce your State taxes and receive other county benefits for up to seven years!
