Coast Gateway Regional Economic Development Alliance
about

Lending Alliance

Coastal Gateway has organized a network of regional and community banks to provide participatory loans for economic development projects, both for companies new to the area and for existing business and industry looking to expand.

This partnership allows for the potential funding of both larger and slightly higher-risk projects, and for projects with greater capital demand. As a result, projects that might not otherwise be able to secure funding may be able to do just that with the Lending Alliance’s help. The partnership also provides a means to keep the economic impact as locally contained as possible, circulating money between local banks and local borrowers and helping to drive the flow of commerce.

Listed below is the contact information for each bank. Those interested in learning more about the Coastal Gateway Lending Alliance can also contact project coordinator Will Ruzic at (251) 248-2143 ext. 2, or at This email address is being protected from spambots.
