Small Business Loans

The Catawba Regional Development Corporation is a nonprofit corporation established to provide supplemental government financing for new or expanding businesses.

Its mission is to facilitate growth, expansion and diversification of the local economy by providing financial assistance to start-up and expanding businesses by offering a variety of loan programs including the SBA 504 program, the Revolving Loan Fund Program, and the Intermediary Relending Program.  With these programs CRDC can provide loans ranging from $50,000 to $5 million.  In addition, the Development Corporation also oversees a Brownfields Program specifically structured to provide funding for the redevelopment of properties which may be inhibited by the presence of hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminates.

Catawba Regional has several different loan programs available which can be used for land, building, machinery and equipment, or working capital for new or expanding businesses.  Catawba Regional works with area commercial real estate brokers, contractors, and local banks, to promote Economic Development.  Our staff is also available to make presentations to Economic Development or business interest groups on the available programs in your area.  For more lending information contact Randy Pellisero or Ed Brock at 803-327-9041.
