INCENTIVES WITHOUT WALLS PROGRAM

Through a “Memorandum of Understanding” with The Kansas Department of Commerce, McPherson Main Street is able to offer Incentives without Walls (IWW), a 0% interest loan fund for member projects located in the Downtown Main Street district. These funds are intended to be gap financing and act as an incentive to create or stimulate private investment by requiring a private match for every $1 of IWW funds received. Applying for an IWW loan is a competitive process, with specific local and state guidelines. The McPherson Main Street office can give you the local requirements form and any information necessary to complete the application process. Details and sample projects can be found in the brochure below.
