Steel Valley Enterprise Zone Expands

The Steel Valley Enterprise Zone Corporation has expanded the Enterprise Zone area for business financing in the entire municipalities of Homestead, West Homestead and Munhall; and a portion of the 31st Ward of the City of Pittsburgh.  This means that any for-profit business that is expanding and creating new employment or new businesses coming into the area will be able to access Enterprise Zone low-interest loan financing.

SVEZC President Catherine Lesko explains:  "Previously the State of Pennsylvania, which capitalized our Enterprise Zone Loan Fund, restricted the Enterprise Zone to certain census tracts.  We are now able to assist businesses throughout the three Steel Valley boroughs and a portion of the 31st Ward of the City of Pittsburgh. Great things are happening in the Steel Valley.  It's an exciting destination for entertainment, food, beverage, and the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail bringing in people from around the globe."
