Special Funding Available for Lending to Creative Businesses

Rising Tide is pleased to announce it has received funding from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (PCA) to provide business loans to creative businesses in the Greater Lehigh Valley.

Loans are available to businesses that utilize creativity, skill and aesthetics. Types of qualifying businesses include (but are not limited to) craft manufacturers; media, visual, and performing arts; graphic and fashion design; architecture, design, and fabrication firms; and arts schools.

Like all Rising Tide business loans, these funds are subject to approval. As a nonprofit, Rising Tide considers many aspects of a business – not just credit score – when making lending decisions.

If you are looking to start or grow a creative business, don’t hesitate. Apply today!

This program is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Creative Businesses May Also Qualify for up to $2,000 in Grant Funding

Rising Tide also has a partnership with PA Council On the Arts and Lehigh Valley Community Foundation to refer creative entrepreneurs for grant funding up to $2,000. The Rising Tide team is available to assist business owners in this process.
