What we do

Our Community Futures office provides services and program supports to rural small- and medium-sized business owners and entrepreneurs. Our services include:

  • Business planning support
  • Small business training
  • One-on-one start-up or expansion consulting
  • Support in gaining access to other small business supports, information, and access to capital

Community Futures are developmental lenders. That means we work in collaboration with, not in competition to, conventional lenders like banks and credit unions. For over 20 years we have successfully helped local entrepreneurs get financing to: 

  • Start or expand a business 
  • Apply new technology to a business 
  • Upgrade a business' facilities and/or equipment
  • Develop new products and services
  • Access new markets
  • Expand into the global marketplace

In addition to these client services, we offer facilities rentals to local groups and businesses, as well as state-of-the-art video conferencing technology for use in training sessions, conferences and business meetings.

Community Futures (CF) is a program that supports community economic development and builds the capacity of communities to realize their full sustainable potential.  The purpose of the CF Program is to help communities develop and implement local solutions to local problems.
