The loan program was established to provide low interest funds to growing commercial property owners. The loan amounts range from $50,000 to $500,000 and are available to commercial property owners interested in improving existing corridors, job creation and inclusive economic development.

  • Improve business retention
  • Attract new businesses and visitors
  • Create visually pleasing areas for all residents to enjoy
  • Increase local employment

Most businesses understand the term “skin in the game” – the City’s desire is to fund responsible, successful businesses, and the property owner will be required to support a portion of the venture. The city and owner will work together to develop a clear scope and strategy that’s agreeable to all parties involved and works to achieve a mutually beneficial project to help Fountain Valley achieve funding program goals. The City of Fountain Valley would like for this to be a win-win arrangement.
