The Development Department offers low-interest loan programs available to both individuals and businesses. Qualified applicants must have a project in which investments are being made to either a business or a building. Since 1990, the Development Department has managed over seventy loans exceeding $10,000,000 in total loan funds.
Loan amounts start at a minimum of $25,000 and depend on the type of project and investment being made. Numerous Troy companies have benefited, ranging from the small retail and service businesses to larger corporations in manufacturing. As most programs operate on a "first come, first serve" basis, the available dollars for new loans will depend upon recent loan activity. Private financing is required when seeking a City loan.
Program descriptions can be found below. For more information, please contact the Development Department at (937) 339-9601.
Troy Economic Development Revolving Loan Fund
The Troy Economic Development Revolving Loan Fund is a city-administered program leveraging federal dollars to provide “gap financing” to businesses that have a primary lender. The Troy ED RLF strengthens cash flow and capacity position for the business by requiring a minimum of 10 percent equity and providing a low interest rate. In addition, the program is attractive for banks as the City helps guarantee the loan.
