Business Friendly Lending. 

Ashland Area Development Corporation administers eight Revolving Loan Funds (RLF's) to assist businesses in Ashland County.  RLF's provide potential funding, often referred to as gap financing, for projects that cannot meet all their financing needs in the private sector.  These RLF's usually provide secondary financing in partnership with other local lenders and are designed to provide an incentive for businesses to locate and/or expand in Ashland County.  RLF funding is quite often the final piece of the puzzle which allows a project to proceed.   

For more information about these RLF's or other potential funding sources, please contact AADC Executive Director, Betsey Harries, at (715) 682-8344.
