State Treasurer Sponsoring Programs

State Treasurer Sponsoring Programs

by Kelly Choate on August 1, 2011

The State Treasurer is trying to stimulate growth in small business and agricultural communities.

Regional Representative Jim Bernholtz paid a visit to the Muskingum County Commissioners on Monday.  The four programs under consideration are GrowNOW, ECO-Link, SaveNOW and Ag-LINK.  Commissioner Jerry Lavy said Muskingum County’s agricultural population could benefit from the Ag-LINK program.

"There’s another one that’s called GrowNOW, and this program gives small business owners somewhere like a 3% reduction in their bank loans when the loan is linked to retaining employees or new employees," said Lavy.
