Connecticut Small Business Boost Fund

This low-interest loan program is supported by the Connecticut Department of Economic & Community Development.

The program gives small business owners access to flexible funding for capital expenditures and working capital and connects them with support services like the CT Small Business Development Center. It’s a personal, equitable approach to lending, because business owners are more than just numbers on a spreadsheet.

Small businesses and nonprofits can borrow between $5,000 and $500,000 depending on eligibility and need, and can choose how they spend the money — on equipment, payroll, utilities & rent, supplies, marketing & advertising, eligible refinancing, building renovations, and other expenses.
