The Nontraditional Micro-loan Program was created by CEED to encourage community economic development and job creation by providing funds for underserved and disadvantaged small businesses in the Pittsburgh area.

Today, small business owners face increasing difficulty when it comes to accessing the capital they need to jump-start or grow their business operations, especially those of low to moderate-income. We provide low-interest, flexible financing up to $10,000 to new and already established small businesses that typically do not qualify for traditional bank loans, oftentimes due to a short length of time in business or an insufficient credit history.

CEED works to expand access to the funding small businesses need to succeed and grow the local economy.
