Small Business Fund

Small Business Fund Program

A small business fund is an economic development tool in which a pool of money is used for the purpose of making loans to individuals and businesses in the community. As loans are repaid by the borrowers, the money is returned to the loan fund, creating the opportunity to issue new loans to other businesses.

The fund seeks to build stronger communities by creating job opportunities and supporting entrepreneurial initiatives by providing financing for microenterprises located within Athens-Clarke County.

All potential candidates are required to attend an information session before applying.

Applications can only be picked up at the required info session. Please contact Daun Fest, Director of Operations, at daun@athenslandtrust.org for more information.
