Wayne County has two below-market loan programs that were established with grant funds.
The Agribusiness Microenterprise Program is a small business (5 or fewer employees) to help low to moderate income people as 1-7 year loans or with technical assistance (business planning). This program was established with Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding through the Office of Community Renewal.
The GAIN! Program is a 1-7 year loan program for capital purchases (for example: equipment). This program is being established with Empire State Development grant funding and is expected to become available in early 2016.
