Programs for Lending Institutions

​To help secure more funding for Maryland's entrepreneurs and reduce risk, we have programs that encourage private sector investments with insurance and the issuance of tax-exempt and taxable revenue bonds. ​

Loan Guarantees

MIDFA can be used for land acquisition, building acquisition, co​nstruction costs, machinery and equipment, furniture and fixtures, leasehold improvements, certain eligible "soft costs," energy-related projects and working capital.  
     
  • Maryland Small Business Development Financing Authority (MSBDFA)
