BRADFORD LOAN FUND: In addition to the direct loan programs described under the Small Business Lending section, CRDC manages a small business loan fund targeted to growing businesses in the Town of Bradford in Merrimack County and surrounding communities. Loans of between $10,000 and $200,000 are available for real estate acquisition and improvements. Working capital loans are also eligible. The funds can be only used to fill a financing gap or match bank financing. Typically, a borrower is already working with a bank on a potential loan and the bank lender identifies a funding gap and reaches out to a CRDC lender to discuss a potential loan to address the gap. These funds typically provide less than 50 percent of the total project costs. Please contact a CRDC loan officer for additional information.
