The goal of the Lake Worth CRA Small Business Loan Program is to encourage new business, improve the appearance of the City’s Artisanal District and provide needed services and jobs to area residents. All businesses are encouraged to apply, but due to limited funding, the Lake Worth CRA may evaluate submissions and show priority to arts related businesses.
Paragon provides technical assistance to businesses who wish to apply to the loan program. Services offered include assistance in areas such as marketing, management, finance and strategic planning. All businesses must meet eligibility requirements and obtain a referral from the Lake Worth CRA.
