Region 10 is a non-profit organization serving as an alliance of government and business. Region 10 serves Delta, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Montrose, Ouray, and San Miquel Counties.
Revoling Loan Fund (RLF) The purpose of the RLF is to provide financing to new and existing industry and businesses in the Region 10 area. Financial gaps appear when standard lending institutions cannot or will not finance smaller, riskier, or unconventional projects. The RLF works closely with local banks and other financial institutions in providing these funds. In some cases the RLF requires another lender to participate in the financing as a primary lender.

Applicant/Borrower may be corporations, partnerships, sole proprietors, non-profits and municipalities. The funds loaned by the RLF may be used for operating capital, construction (in some cases), machinery, equipment, energy and other supportable expenditures.
This loan fund is designed to improve local economic conditions by creating new jobs or retaining jobs. This program works in conjunction with a financial institution and the loan amount can be up to 20% of the total project with a maximum of $100,000. The maximum term of the loan is 10 years at Denver prime rate or below. At least 51% of the borrower’s employees must be low to moderate income for the previous 12 months.

This loan fund is funded by other loans that have been paid off. The dollars then become “revolved” money. Once the money has “revolved” the RLF lends it back to other businesses in the community for the benefit of all. The fund is designed for start-up businesses or companies needing capital to expand. The loan can be used for working capital, equipment, furniture, fixtures or inventory.
