The BDC works to incentivize business recruitment and retention in a number of ways, including its $500,000 revolving loan fund and a downtown business assistance grant. Loan funds are available to businesses countywide in a variety of sectors and have proven to be valuable for start-ups and existing enterprises alike.

The grant program has been initiated to facilitate new business openings in the county’s downtown districts, with the funds intended to support these new businesses as they navigate the critical first few months of operation.
