What We Do

DVREDF provides low-interest capital to commercial enterprises and non-profit organizations that seek to take their operations to the next level. DVREDF supports projects that have clear and measurable job impact and contribute in a measurable way to neighborhood and/or regional economic development. DVREDF provides flexible loans of up to $500,000 to projects that benefit communities of need. DVREDF prefers expansion projects proposed by established businesses or non-profits versus start-ups.

DVREDF offers financing to a broad range of organizations and projects, such as helping a local non-profit grow its facility or aiding the launch of a local tourist attraction’s ten-year strategic plan. Eligible enterprises include non-profit and for-profit entities, as well as certain public private partnerships.

DVREDF has limited funding for a small number of grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 for projects that specifically support economic development and job impact.
