Wayne County Economic Development Corporation

Our mission is to develop, promote, and advance economic growth, well being and sustainable communities in Wayne County.


The Wayne Economic Development Corporation advances our mission through providing economic resources and financing opportunities for new and established businesses in Wayne County. 

Our Revolving Loan Fund provides a second source of financing (gap financing) for eligible businesses wishing to expand or locate in Wayne County and who have been unable to fully finance their projects with equity, conventional financing, or other private and public sources. Funds can be used for the acquisition of land, buildings, and fixed equipment, site preparation and construction, reconstruction or installation of buildings and fixed equipment, the payment of assessments for sewer, water, street, other public utilities, and working capital.

Our Microenterprise Revolving Loan Fund is designed to provide small loans to start-up, newly established, or growing small businesses. A key objective of the program is to assist business owners who have traditionally had difficulty accessing debt financing. Funds may be used for working capital, inventory purchases, machinery and equipment, furniture, fixtures, supplies, leasehold improvements, minor building renovation/rehabilitation, or natural disaster recovery.

Our GAIN Loan Fund supports capital projects for the creation, retention and expansion opportunities for the region’s farmers and agricultural related businesses.
