Economic Resources for Businesses
Revolving Loan Fund
In July of 1986, the City of De Pere was awarded a $595,000 grant from the Wisconsin Development Fund (WDF). The grant was provided under the Economic Development Program administered by the Wisconsin Department of Development. Proceeds from the grant were utilized for the City of De Pere Economic Development Revolving Loan Fund. Since the initial grant, the City has used the principal and interest repaid on the initial loan and subsequent loans to develop the City of De Pere’s Revolving Loan Fund. This program provides gap financing in the form of loans to eligible businesses wishing to expand or relocate to De Pere. Eligible Businesses: (Citywide) Manufacturing, wholesale, and selected service establishments.
