In response to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak and its impact on local businesses, Grow Wabash County is activating its Revolving Loan Fund to help our local business community survive the challenges brought on by these unprecedented situations. This program was seeded in the early 2000’s with funds from the USDA Rural Development and has funded numerous projects in Wabash County for almost 20 years.
Grow Wabash County, in partnership with the City of Wabash, will be offering Rapid Response loans with the intention of expediting the review process for loan requests of up to $7,500. Loan requests for over $7,500 will be available as well but will be subject to additional terms and requirements through our traditional revolving loan fund program, including receiving a DUNS number.
To help offset financial hardships faced due to the COVID-19 crisis such as:
Businesses operating in Wabash County, current on all taxes, are credit-worthy may qualify for either loan.
