Sustainability Loan for Small Businesses Impacted by COVID-19


A Business Sustainability Loan Program is available if your company has been negatively impacted by COVID-19 restrictions and needs assistance with working capital.

The Ohio Valley Regional Development Commission is seeking applicants for loans from $5,000 to $25,000 with Interest rates as low as 2% for 3 to 5 years and pay nothing for the first 6 months.

Eligible borrowers are existing small businesses or sole proprietors in Adams, Brown, Clermont, Fayette, Gallia, Highland, Jackson, Lawrence, Pike, Ross, Scioto, or Vinton Counties.

Use the loan proceeds for day-to-day operating expenses to work through the temporary economic downturn. No bank is required and it has a low application fee of $100.
