NHBFA Announces Expanded Partnership with Regional Economic Development Corporation

Expansion means an additional $1,000,000 revolving loan fund available for small businesses in Hillsborough and Rockingham Counties.

The New Hampshire Business Finance Authority (BFA) has expanded its partnership with the Regional Economic Development Corporation (REDC) in order to help more local businesses expand and succeed. The BFA received unanimous approval from the Governor and Executive Council this week to nearly double its line of credit to the REDC, in order to have a greater impact in the communities the agency serves.
The Regional Economic Development Center is a private, non-profit organization that offers technical assistance, financing and business development training in Hillsborough and Rockingham Counties. This expanded partnership means the BFA’s line of credit to the REDC will expand from $1.3 million to $2.3 million dollars. The increase allows more small businesses greater access to loan capital in two of New Hampshire’s largest counties.

“We are very excited about building upon the important work we’ve done with the REDC,” stated James Key-Wallace, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Business Finance Authority. “Through enhancing this line of credit, our two organizations will be able to jointly help even more small businesses access the capital they need to grow. This type of support helps the regions the REDC serves as well as the state’s economy as a whole.” – Laurel Adams
