KVCOG provides financing assistance for start-ups, expansions and modernizations throughout the region. Funding for the agency’s lending, grant and technical assistance programs are secured through a mix of State and federal loan and grant programs and strategic partnerships.

In order to be eligible for the business loan program, the business must be located in Kennebec, Somerset, or western Waldo County. The business must be unable to finance the proposed project from its own resources or through commercial credit or other federal, State or local programs at reasonable rates and terms.
