Small Business Loans
The Trail Town Program’s parent nonprofit, The Progress Fund, funds small businesses.
In our Trail Towns, we’ve funded businesses like:
- Bike shops
- & more
Most conventional lenders don’t give to small, rural businesses. But The Progress Fund specializes in tourism and hospitality loans that can benefit the local community, so we’ve made $10 million in loans to 32 new or expanding businesses in the Trail Towns along the Great Allegheny Passage.
