The primary objectives of the revolving Loan Program are to create and retain employment opportunities for persons of low-to-moderate income through the expansion or creation of new businesses in the City of Glens Falls; to retain existing employment opportunities; to increase municipal sales and property tax revenues; to provide assistance to projects that present growth potential; to provide assistance to maintain, establish or expand small business – especially in the Central Business District; to leverage the greatest level of private funds possible; and to manage the loan fund in a manner that results in an increasing loan pool.
