Since 1956, CAN DO has been one of the leading economic development corporations in Northeastern Pennsylvania. We’ve assisted hundreds of companies with finding the right location for their operations, helped them work with local and state agencies, obtained financing through grants and loans and aided with expansions. We are a one-stop source for all of your financing needs, whether you are looking for loans through a local bank or assistance from government institutions.
CAN DO understands that, in business development, financial assistance often plays an integral role in the success of a project or growth of a business. Low-interest loans, grants and other services with the goal of creating jobs are available to assist businesses with their activities. Some of the grants and loans include land and building acquisition loans, Small Business First loans, machinery and equipment loans, workforce training grants and job creation and investment loans.
Acting as a liaison between businesses and service providers, CAN DO provides tailored solutions to its clients. We have decades of experience in identifying the appropriate comprehensive funding resources that leverage federal, state, regional and local funding.
CAN DO has been certified by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) as a certified economic development organization (CEDO), enabling the organization to act as a conduit for state funding. We work closely with the DCED, whose mission is to foster opportunities for businesses to grow and for communities to succeed and thrive in a global economy.
Our financing experts guide companies through all stages of the process, beginning with explaining the variety of available funding packages. They can also help with completing and submitting funding applications.
