LION Announces COVID-19 Emergency Loan Program

 LION Network logoLION, the Local Investing Opportunities Network, has established a new loan program for Jefferson County businesses and non-profits needing funding to deal with the COVID-19 emergency. The loan application and instructions are downloadable from the the LION website. A fast track process has been established to handle the applications.

LION is a network that connects business and non-profits seeking financing with over 60 local investors.  Since 2006 LION members have invested in over 75 Jefferson County businesses and non-profits. LION members opted to initiate a new application route to provide emergency loans to as many non-profits and business as their members can afford.

LION welcomes inquires from people who would like to become a member and increase the resiliency of our local community.  Information is available here. LION is affiliated with Local 20/20 and EDC Team Jefferson.
