News and Opportunities  

The Connecticut Small Business Boost Fund is a new resource that will move your business forward.
Supported by the Connecticut Department of Economic & Community Development, the Connecticut Small Business Boost Fund links Connecticut small businesses and nonprofits to the financial support they need to thrive.

The Connecticut Small Business Boost Fund gives small business owners access to flexible funding for capital expenditures and working capital and connects them with support services. 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.
