Economic Growth and Innovation
Small businesses are the backbone of our Louisville economy. And when they thrive and expand, they bring needed services and shops to neighborhoods across the city.
The Metropolitan Business Development Corporation (METCO) governs metro government's small business loans, which include facade, retail forgivable and gap financing loans. Click here for more information on available loans.
