Revolving Loan Fund

In the fall of 2007, the Buckeye Hills RC&D Council established the Revolving Loan Fund.  The loan fund focuses on the startup or expansion of small businesses in Athens, Belmont, Hocking, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Noble, Perry, and Washington counties.


This program allows qualified applicants to borrow up to $50,000.  The minimum requirements include creation or retention of one or more jobs, adequate new or existing collateral as loan security, and capability to implement project while repaying loan.

You may contact our office for additional information or request an application packet.  Applicants must have a business plan that supports and clarifies what the business is about. A business plan is an important step in the success of developing or expanding a business. Sample business plan outlines can be found on the internet. Assistance is also available with this step from the Ohio Small Business Development Center offices located in our region.
Other required information includes previous years’ tax records and other supporting documentation that helps support the business application.
