Together with Justine PETERSEN and Champaign County, the Champaign County Economic Development Corporation (CCEDC) is pleased to announce the establishment of the COVID-19 Recovery: Champaign County Small Business Microloan Fund. The loan fund aims to help disadvantaged entrepreneurs and small businesses in Champaign County gain access to affordable financial services.
Champaign County committed $250,000 of its American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to establish the microloan fund. Justine PETERSEN worked locally with Busey Bank and PNC Bank to leverage the dollars provided by the county. A total of $2,000,000 is available in the fund, which will continue to revolve in Champaign County.
To learn more about the COVID-19 Recovery: Champaign County Small Business Microloan Fund, interested individuals are invited to stop by the Justine PETERSEN Open Office Hours to hear from Tristan Brown, Asset Building Counselor.
