Lake Crystal Revolving Loan Fund Program


The major mission of the City of Lake Crystal Economic Development Loan Program is to initiate, facilitate, and promote legitimate economic/industrial development interest in the Lake Crystal area. Program money is intended to complement, not replace, existing development efforts.


The program is intended to be a permanent revolving fund where money is available for new loans on a continuing basis as loans are repaid. Loans under this program will serve as matching funds, up to fifty percent (50%) of the total project cost, to leverage financing from private sources to expand or improve existing business or industry or assist in developing new business or industry. The Lake Crystal Economic Development Authority does not intend the loan program becoming the primary source of a project’s development funding.
