Economic Development Framework
Mecklenburg County understands the difficulties faced by small businesses in response to COVID-19. The County is committed to stabilizing small businesses by providing loans before other Federal or State funds are available.
Start-ups and small businesses that were not profitable prior to the COVID-19 pandemic – as evidenced by tax filings - are not eligible for program participation.
Payoff of existing debts
