Forgivable Loan Program

The Bryan Area Foundation Community Impact Committee (CIC)

Established in 2020, CIC serves to ensure the Foundation’s strategic plan is implemented. To help in the execution, the committee partnered with the local non-profit, Bryan Development, whose mission is to support economic growth and restoration of historic buildings in Bryan, Ohio. Out of this partnership, a Forgivable Loan Program was created with its primary goal to increase occupancy of the city’s downtown business district. Secondary goals include addressing safety issues, improving aesthetics and building facades, and extending the life of existing buildings.

Launched in May 2022, the Forgivable Loan Program is currently helping business owners renovate their buildings due to the generous funding made possible through the estate of Richard C. Anderson.
