We give new meaning to the phrase "ready, willing and able." Our REDI (Revolving Economic Development and Initiative) Fund is designed to help promote job growth in South Dakota. This low-interest loan fund is available to start-up firms, businesses that are expanding or relocating and local economic development corporations.
How it Works
The REDI Fund provides up to 45 percent of a project's total cost. Companies should secure interim (construction) financing, matching funds for permanent financing and be able to provide a 10 percent minimum equity contribution before applying to the Board of Economic Development for a REDI Fund loan.
Costs eligible for participation may include:
Costs that are NOT eligible include:
Interest rates have remained at 3 percent since the program's inception, and loans are amortized up to 20 years on land and buildings, and 10 years on equipment, with a balloon payment due after five years.
