By: City of Muncie—
Muncie, IN- The Muncie Industrial Revolving Loan Fund Board has created the “COVID-19 Relief Loan for Small Business.”
This loan is designed to provide aid to local small businesses who have felt the economic impact of the COVID-19 epidemic. The board has made $150,000 of City funds available, which it will spread across 20 businesses. This allows for $7,500 to be allotted to each of those 20 businesses. The loan is non-forgivable, and will need to be paid back, however there are options on the terms.
The criteria for the loan is listed below:
• The MIRLF will accept 20 applications beginning May 4th, 2020.
• Businesses must be currently located within Muncie corporate limits.
• Loans will be up to $7,500.
• Interest rates will be 3.25% for 36 month loans, or 4% for 60 months.
Applications are available by clicking the link below. The applications will need filled out in entirety and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
