Clackamas County Economic and Business Development
Mid-Columbia Economic Development District
The Mt Hood Economic Alliance is a partnership between Clackamas, Hood River and Wasco counties that has gap financing loans for local businesses. MHEA provides secondary financing for businesses unable to secure (enough) financing through conventional banking means.
Focus of MHEA funding is on the creation and retention of jobs. Priority is given to those business development projects that create or retain better than average wage jobs in the agriculture, light manufacturing, recreation equipment, technology or tourism industries.
MHEA, as a source of "gap" financing, is also looking for projects that leverage other sources of business development capital.
