Augusta has a number of loan programs available to assist businesses and entrepeneurs with obtaining capital to start a new business or expand an existing business. By submitting the Uniform Loan Application, applicants simultaneously apply for assistance from three distinct loan programs. A quick comparison of the three program requirements is shown in this table.
A business plan is required to be submitted as part of this application packet. API encourages all applicants to seek technical assistance when developing their business plan and financial projections. For new business start-ups especially, API strongly recommends contacting the Kansas Small Business Development Center (KSBDC). Technical assistance will be provided free of charge.
