Application form and guidelines - click here
The Red Wing HRA Board of Commissioners on March 11, 2014 increased the allocation of the Small Cities Program Income Fund by $100,000 and has authorized the HRA to accept two new applications. The maximum loan amount is $50,000. Commercial properties in the targeted area are eligible for application. The targeted areas are basically Old West Main and Downtown.
The HRA has already approved one application for funding from an earlier round. That means that $50,000 is available for funding a new application. The HRA will accept two new applications for processing. However only one application will be funded until additional program income funds are received. The application that is first completed and approved by the Board will be funded first. The second application will need to wait for funding. Our intention is to fund the second application as soon as funding is available. Once the two applications are accepted, the HRA will close the application process.
With this latest increase in the funding, the HRA has allocated $450,000 in Program Income funds for the program since its initiation in February of 2013.
