Local and Regional Loan Programs
The Northeast Nebraska Economic Development District (NENEDD) and Northeast Economic Development Inc. (NED, Inc.) provides gap financing for businesses in 26 counties in northeast and north central Nebraska in conjunction with local banks. Loans typically range from $5,000 to $200,000 with terms not to exceed 20 years. Loans are earmarked for financing fixed assets such as land, building, equipment and working capital.
Many communities maintain a Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) for smaller projects in their community. Projects will vary and may include retail projects in most of our communities. Assistance varies but generally is used for building, equipment and working capital. Loans can vary from $5,000 to $200,000 if the community has adequate funds available.
Local Incentive Programs
The Cities of Albion, Columbus, Schuyler, and St. Edward have imposed a local sales tax to support economic development projects. These are local funds typically set aside to assist with land, building and start-up expenses for new and growing companies. Each community has adopted criteria for eligibility of funding assistance.
