Los Angeles Small Business Loan Program for Job Creation

Los Angeles small business is encouraged to create new jobs with small business loan packages.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Thursday announced a $15 million loan program for small businesses in the city. The funds are from the federal Housing and Urban Development’s Section 108 loan program.

The small business loan program, will be administered by the Valley Economic Development Center, and make loans of between $50,000 and $400,000 to existing businesses in order to help offset the impacts of the recession.

Business borrowers must either demonstrate the creation of additional jobs – with wages and salaries that meet the city’s living wage ordinance requirements – or prove that they are maintaining current employment levels.

"Over 70 percent of Angelenos work for a small business and that’s why we’re launching this ambitious small business loan program today, to assist those who need a helping hand during these tough economic times," Villaraigosa said.

The Northridge factory of Powerline Control Systems Inc. manufactures energy-efficient lights and is the first loan recipient in the new program. The loan to Powerline is expected to create up to 107 jobs over the next three years.
