Business Startups

Kick-Start Your Startup

Put a strategic plan in place. Apply for the loan you need. Let the Neighborhood Community Development Fund help make your idea a reality.

The Northside is a diverse neighborhood with culture and community, let’s help it grow with the rest of the Pittsburgh region. The Neighborhood Community Development Fund is a knowledgeable partner for all entrepreneurs, including woman- and minority-owned businesses, by providing the tools and resources we know you need.



We realize funding can be hard to come by, but the most successful businesses never took no for an answer—and you shouldn’t either. Apply for a small business loan through the Neighborhood Community Development Fund. Our experts provide low-interest financing for a variety of startups and entrepreneurs alike.


Every business startup needs a team of people around them because sometimes you need to bounce an idea off someone—and that’s okay. Since 2000, we have supported business startups in the Northside through educational events to even preparing business plans—so you could say we know a thing or two. 


Ready to upgrade your operations? We help our people find a place in the Neighborhood community, a place that meets their needs—and their wants. Our goal: to help the Neighborhood community continue to expand with the region. And by putting the right businesses in our buildings, we can do just that.
