Revolving Loan Program

Low-interest Loan Program

In August 2009, Main Street Momence was awarded a $99,000 USDA Rural Development Grant to established a low-interest revolving loan program. Kankakee County provided $50,000 as the local match for the fund.

Goals of the Main Street Momence Revolving Loan Program are:

To serve as an incentive to further economic development in the downtown core
To serve as a low-interest, gap financing source
To retain employment in the downtown district
To stimulate commercial activity in the downtown district
To provide financing to business owners for a variety of needs, including repairs, equipment, building maintenance and professional fees
To recruit business and create jobs in the downtown commercial district

The Low-interest Loan Program works in tandem with MSM's Facade Grant Program to provide critical funding to our downtown business and building owners. Program specifics include:

Minimum loan amount is $3,000; maximum is $15,000
Interest rate is 3%
Term of loan is 5 years maximum
