Revolving Loan Fund

The Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) assists small businesses with expansions to create and/or retain jobs in Kansas City, Missouri when conventional bank financing is not possible.

Banks typically have the first security interest and offer only 50 percent of the total financing for a project. Using a RLF allows a small business to proceed with an expansion that otherwise may not occur.

Funds for this program are provided by the U.S. Economic Development Administration.

Projects eligible for financing:
  • For-profit business
  • Not-for-debt refinance
  • Located within the city limits of Kansas City, Missouri
  • In business for at least 2 years

A project may not be eligible for financing if credit is otherwise available on terms and conditions that would allow the project to proceed.
