Loan Application Guidelines

1. The Marion County Development Authority offers economic development loans up to a maximum of $100,000.  Since the Development Authority is not a primary lending source, these loans are contingent upon additional sources of funding to be developed by loan applicants. Additional sources of funds may be a Small Business Administration Loan, Bank Loans, West Virginia Economic Development Authority Loans, Grants, or a combination of several of these sources.

Loans are available for specific projects that will increase job opportunities in Marion County. This may include loans for the purchase of real or personal property, but will normally exclude loans for business inventory that is intended for resale.
