Wayne County has two below-market loan programs that were established with grant funds.
The Agribusiness Microenterprise Program
The Agribusiness Microenterprise Program is a small business (5 or fewer employees) to help low to moderate-income people as 1 to 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
The GAIN! Program is a 1 to 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.
