GREAT FALLS — As the COVID pandemic continues, the Great Falls Development Authority is offering loans in an effort to provide financial relief to small businesses in our community.
Whether a business needs assistance due to Covid-related issues, needs financial help that a bank can’t cover, or is presented with a new business opportunity, the GFDA says it can help.
The GFDA is a certified community development financial institution and a 501(c)3 charitable organization. They offer loans for working capital, gap, and bridge financing.
In addition to their financial assistance options, they also host a Montana Small Business Development Center, a Montana Procurement Technical Assistance Center, and a Montana Food and Agriculture Development Center.
“We’re trying to put tools out there to help them, to make sure that they have what they need to be successful,” said Nathan Reiff, a Small Business Development Coach.
