City of Austin EDD Veterans Small Business Loan Initiative

We’re excited to continue to do more for our veterans in the Austin community.  Some of you may have seen or heard about the press conference last week, announcing the City of Austin Economic Development Department's Veterans Small Business Loan Initiative.  The Veteran Business Loan is part of the Family Business Loan Program (FBLP), a public-private partnership between the City of Austin Economic Development Department and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which offers a low-interest rate loan and low borrower equity requirements to help create or expand a business.  To learn more about the program go to:  Veteran Business Loan Initiative.
