The Vermont Community Loan Fund creates opportunities that lead to healthy communities and financial stability for all Vermonters.
VCLF is a mission-driven, community-focused alternative lender. We make loans to local businesses, community organizations & nonprofits, child care providers and developers of affordable housing who don’t qualify for a loan from a traditional lender. We combine our loans with financial consulting and business development services to make sure our borrowers have access to everything they need to succeed.
VCLF's bi-annual newsletter, NoteWorthy, is hot off the press and now available. Our Summer 2015 edition covers the launch of our new Food, Farms & Forests Fund. Also, an engaging profile of VCLF borrower and rising entrepreneur Joe Bossen of Vermont Bean Crafters. Plus updates on VCLF lending and more! Read it all here.
