Financial Relief

Muskegon County
Recovery Loan

This loan was created to assist those businesses that are not already current borrowers with GROW by giving them access to capital that can assist with needs that have arisen due to closures or reduced hours/services because of the Executive Stay at Home Order.

These funds can be used as a way to keep businesses afloat, to assist with the re-opening process and development of new revenue streams.

SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) is a low-interest, fixed-rate loan that can provide up to $2 million in assistance for a small business. EIDL funds come directly from the U.S. Treasury.

SBA resumed accepting new EIDL applications on June 15 to all qualified small businesses, including U.S. agricultural businesses.
