Economic Development Planning

Revolving Loan Fund (RLF)

Funded by the Economic Development Administration, the region’s RLF, officially named Southwestern Wisconsin Business Development Fund, Inc.(SWWBDF), targets job-creating business development/expansion projects that address a regional need or a specific unmet need in a community.  It is intended to provide gap financing to make business loans bankable.  It is not a grant program or intended to compete with banks and its interest rates are typically 1 to 1 ½ percent below prime.
