GREATER CHESTERTOWN INITIATIVE, LOAN FUND
 

The Greater Chestertown Initiative (GCI) facilitates the Open for Business in Chestertown program. Open for Business is designed to provide “kickstarter” funding for new or expanding businesses with the goal of filling empty storefronts in the downtown.

Open for Business invites entrepreneurs to submit requests for funding and through a juried process select those deemed most promising. Awards will be made in the form of matching funds and virtually interest free loans.
