Respond. Retain. Recover. Rebuild.
COVID-19 has changed everything. The long-term recovery of our neighbors impacted by the pandemic will be critical to maintaining Dutchess County’s success. As we transition into long-term recovery, Dutchess County is committed to supporting its small business community. In order to mitigate the impact COVID-19 has had on our small business community, Think Dutchess has responded with a small business relief loan program. The program was created to retain our businesses and ensure economic recovery.
Together we will help our small businesses rebuild and move into a successful future!
Think Dutchess Small Business Relief Loan
The Dutchess County Local Development Corp. (DCLDC) has created a new loan program to help small businesses recover from economic hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This program aims to provide relief to small businesses in Dutchess County impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and retain as many jobs as possible. By promptly providing small loans (not to exceed $10,000.00) to qualified Dutchess County businesses that have been unable to secure assistance from other relief programs (EIDL, PPP, Local Emergency Loan and similar programs), the loan fund allows eligible businesses access to much-needed capital to retain jobs, and reopen successfully.
