Economic Development Board Drops REDI Fund Rate

April 23, 2012, 1:34 PM


Gov. Dennis Daugaard says the 3-percent interest rate on new loans from South Dakota's Revolving Economic Development & Initiative Fund is dropping to 2 percent.

Daugaard says he's pleased with the decision by the Board of Economic Development, which oversees the REDI Fund. He says he's optimistic the change will help stimulate South Dakota's economy.

The REDI Fund was created in 1987 under Gov. George Mickelson to diversify South Dakota's economy, increase capital investment and create stable jobs. The loan program is available to start-up firms, businesses that are expanding or relocating and local South Dakota economic development corporations.

The Daugaard administration says the program has created more than 30,000 jobs through 2011.
