Business Loan Programs

The Southern Mississippi Planning and Development District continues to promote economic development through the use of our loan programs designed to supplement other financing sources.

Funding from these programs may be used to provide a portion of the borrowed funds for a project to start a new business or to expand an existing business. Most of the time, SMPDD will establish a partnership with a commercial bank that will provide the additional borrowed funds; however, stand-alone financing is also available.
