Capital Programs

PEDCO is actively pursuing funding to create a small business loan program.

PEDCO is seeking grant funding to start up a business loan program.  Loan funds would be available to businesses at a low interest rate and could be used for start-up costs, operating capital, equipment purchase, etc.  PEDCO hopes to have the loan fund available by early Spring 2024.


If you would like to be added to our mailing list to receive notifications about the loan program please email Larry Loucks,


Another benefit for Native American business owners is that PEDCO now has a business directory on its new website.  Business owners interested in having their business listing on the website should submit:  name of their business, type of business, business address and phone number, contact person for their business, business contact email address, and website (if applicable).
