CCIDA EMERGENCY LOAN FUND PROVES A HUGE SUCCESS
The Chautauqua County Industrial Development Agency (CCIDA) was successful in expeditiously establishing and implementing an emergency working capital loan program to benefit Chautauqua County businesses that have been negatively impacted by the Coronavirus. The CCIDA quickly obtained approval from the US Economic Development Administration to implement the program, and $250,000 was allocated to the fund a little over a month ago.
