Incentives & Aid

In Pulaski County, we understand that the success of your business is a contributing factor to the success of our people and county. Our Economic Development team works tirelessly to uncover incentives to bring new business to town and to benefit those who operate in our borders.

Tax Abatements

Revolving Loan Fund
Administered by Pulaski County Economic Development, the Pulaski County Revolving Loan Fund has a balance of more than $70,000 and growing (as current loan repayments and interest build the fund), available to assist existing and start-up businesses to grow when bank financing is either unavailable or insufficient. A five-member ad hoc committee reviews applications and business plans; if the committee approves, it recommends that the County Commissioners make the loan, at which time the Commissioners hear the applicant’s case and make a judgment. Funding is available at three levels: micro-financing, mini-financing, and regular loans of a minimum principal of $10,000.

See the descriptions and guidelines for the program here, and the application here. (Please contact the PCED executive director before submitting an application.)
