Greenline Ventures

Emergency Microloan Program

Overview

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Greenline Ventures has partnered with the Zoma Foundation to extend the Program through an additional tranche of funds.  This second tranche will be allocated towards small businesses (not just those that are minority, women, or veteran-owned) located in communities throughout the western slope of Colorado, with a specific focus on Grand Junction.  The goal of the Program is to enable these small businesses to continue operations and retain/support employees through this challenging period of economic trouble and uncertainty.  The Program will be administered by Greenline Community Development Fund LLC, an affiliate of Greenline that has been certified as a community development financial institution (CDFI) by the U.S. Treasury Department.  Article from The Daily Sentinel.
