After recognizing that an obstacle for businesses to make sustainability upgrades is fast and affordable financing, the Village of Montour Falls applied for and received a grant through the Appalachian Regional Commission to create a Revolving Loan Fund program. The village is matching the grant with ARPA funds received from the federal government. The loan fund will enable the village to provide low-interest rate, flexible-term loans to local for-profit businesses. The loan funds can be used for most business activities and expenses, however, businesses receiving the funds must include a climate adaptation or efficiency component.
