Small Businesses

Battle Creek Unlimited created the Emergency Loan Fund to help those companies in our community hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to get financial assistance to companies as soon as possible to avoid further economic hardship.

Joe Sobieralski, President & CEO of Battle Creek Unlimited said: “Battle Creek is our community, our home.  The people who work here are our neighbors and friends.  Over the last couple of years, the transformation of Battle Creek, in particular downtown, has been exciting to watch.  It is difficult to see the hopes, dreams, and hard work of so many people suffer, business owners and employees alike. That is why Battle Creek Unlimited wants to do our part in helping our neighbors.  This emergency loan fund will allow our most vulnerable businesses to remain viable during this concerning time.  We understand that there will be many needs beyond this, but it is a start.”
