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. KVCOG offers direct loan programs through our Revolving Loan Funds (RLF). An RLF lends funds to those in need and uses principal and interest payments to finance new loans.
In addition to our direct loan programs, KVCOG can also provide assistance to businesses in accessing other local and State sources of financing.
Eligible uses include: real estate acquisition, building improvements, furniture and fixtures, equipment, inventory, supplies, working capital and/or refinancing debt.
To get started with your loan, please fill out the KVCOG Application for Financing.
If you are in need of creating, or updating your business plan, please view our Business Plan Outline.
