The Capital Regional Development Council, CRDC, is your source for creative financing for small businesses, real estate development, and more.  Let us work with your financial institution to make your deal happen.  From SBA 504 commercial real estate loans to direct small business loans and Brownfield funds, we have the expertise and experience to get your small business project financed!

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.
