Lamoille County
Revolving Loan Fund

Helping our economy grow by developing tools and providing business assistance is the core of Vermont’s economic development plan. Putting this assistance together to benefit low-to-moderate income residents is what Lamoille Economic Development Corporation (LEDC) has done with the Lamoille County Revolving Loan Fund.

Growing businesses often need financing beyond what their primary bank is able to lend them. Small businesses may need loans too small for banks to find profitable. The fund is intended to supplement existing or private sources of funding for small and medium sized businesses whose economic activity has a direct benefit to low-to-moderate income residents. 

The fund provides loans to small and medium sized businesses who are located in or moving to Lamoille County. Vermont.

The fund is intended to supplement existing or private sources
of funding when those funds are limited.

The purpose of the fund is to provide meaningful economic
benefit to the residents of Lamoille County.
