BRADFORD LOAN FUND: In addition to the direct loan programs discussed above, CRDC manages a small business loan fund targeted to growing businesses in the Town of Bradford 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 only be used to fill a gap or match bank financing. Typically, a borrower is working with a bank of a potential loan and the lender identifies a funding gap and reaches out to a CRDC lender to discuss a 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.
