The DEGC, City of Detroit and partner lending institutions have launched a pilot loan program to support small businesses during the Livernois Streetscape construction project. Based on their pre-Streetscape revenues, eligible business owners can borrow between $5,000 and $20,000. The first payment on approved loans is due one year after closing. After making 24 months of payments, business owners can have the remaining 36 months (60 percent) of their loans forgiven.
