Commercial Building Improvement Loan Program (CBIL)
GREDA administers the CBIL Program, a revolving loan fund providing below market rate loans of up to $40,000 to qualified businesses interested in making improvements or additions to their building, or are planning new business construction. To lessen the initial financial burden to a business, Program loans are amortized at an interest rate of 4% over a 20 year period with a 5 year balloon.
