2 Community Reinvestment Area Property Tax Abatements The Community Reinvestment Area (CRA) Program is a permanent tax exemption incentive program benefitting the property owners who renovate existing facilities or construct new buildings. In Medina County, there are 7 CRA areas located in townships, in addition to areas in 3 cities and 2 villages. See map below. Each community has varying terms for the tax abatement, but most communities allow for property tax abatements up to 100% for up to 15 years on new construction and up to 12 years on renovations. For a complete list of abatement schedules, contact the Medina County Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC) at All property owners meeting the requirements set forth in the local legislation and planning to undertake a real property improvement can apply to the Housing Officer designated by the local legislative authority. MCEDC serves as the Housing officer for CRA areas in the townships. In all commercial and industrial projects in a CRA created after July 1, 1994, the exemption percentage and term are to be negotiated between the property owner and the local legislative authority. For township CRAs, MCEDC works with property owners to finalize the abatement agreements and coordinate compliance with all notice requirements to the affected boards of education.

3 Medina County Port Authority The Medina County Port Authority (MCPA) endeavors to build and sustain a competitive business environment in Medina County by utilizing its unique powers to enhance economic development through marketing and innovative financing. Port authorities have the power to finance, build, and lease industrial, commercial, research and distribution, charitable and public projects. As an independent lending alternative to banks, MCPA can offer attractive rates and terms for small businesses seeking financing for fixed assets of $1 million or more, as well as larger businesses in need of conduit financing. The funding source comes primarily from bond financing. By virtue of the tax exempt status with which a port authority is chartered, it can pass the tax breaks along to business borrowers. As an independent lender, MCPA employs investment bankers to conduct the underwriting and then to raise and place the debt in the open capital market. The Medina County Port Authority has formally partnered with the Summit County Port Authority (SCPA) to utilize the SCPA Bond Fund program for Medina County projects in an effort to provide additional financing options for growing companies. This bond fund can finance up to 100% of projects between $1,500,000 and $6,000,000 with tax exempt or taxable bonds for a period of 7 to 20 or 30 years based on the life of the assets being financed. The market rate is based on the investment grade rating of the program by Fitch IBCA and the interest rate is fixed for the term of tax exempt or taxable bonds. PROGRAM BENEFITS INCLUDE: TYPE OF BONDS: Fixed Interest Rate (Up to 30 years) Tax Exempt Bonds Construction and Permanent Financing Industrial Projects 90% to 100% Financing Non Profit (501 C 3) No sales tax on construction and building materials Exempt Facilities Close within 60 to 90 days Governmental Taxable Bonds Commercial Projects This program is ideal for small businesses that wish to borrow money for fixed assets at investment grade rates versus traditional bank financing, including construction, and permanent financing of the project. A project s total transaction size, however, may not exceed $20 million when combined with other financing sources. The long term, fixed interest rates are for up to 20 or 30 years with level payments throughout the term of the loan (rates based on bond rate at the time of sale). For more information, contact the Administrator of the Medina County Port Authority at (Medina County Economic Development Corporation).

4 U.S. Small Business Administration The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) dedicates its energy and resources to providing support to small businesses and small business owners across the nation. SBA helps businesses across the country through the 3 C s of their service: Capital: SBA works with about 5,000 banks to provide SBA loans to deserving small businesses. Contracts: SBA works to ensure that 23% of federal contract dollars go to small businesses. Counseling: 14,000 SBA affiliated counselors are ready to provide small business guidance. While the SBA does not make loans directly, it does partner with business borrowers to provide guarantees to the bank that the loan will be repaid. SBA offers a variety of loan programs for specific purposes: 7(a) Loan Program: Includes financial help for businesses with special requirements. For example, funds are available for loans to businesses that handle exports to foreign countries, businesses that operate in rural areas, companies owned by veterans, and for other specific purposes. Microloan Program: Provides small, short term loans to small business concerns and certain types of not for profit child care centers. The SBA makes funds available to specially designated intermediary lenders, which are nonprofit community based organizations with experience in lending as well as management and technical assistance. These intermediaries make loans to eligible borrowers. The maximum loan amount is $50,000, but the average microloan is about $13,000. CDC/504 Loan Program: A long term financing tool designed to encourage economic development within a community. The 504 Program accomplishes this by providing small businesses with longterm, fixed rate financing to acquire major fixed assets for expansion or modernization. A Certified Development Company (CDC) is a private, nonprofit corporation which is set up to contribute to economic development within its community. CDCs work with SBA and private sector lenders to provide financing to small businesses, which accomplishes the goal of community economic development. Typically, a CDC/504 project includes: A loan secured from a private sector lender with a senior lien covering up to 50% of the project cost A loan secured from a CDC (backed by a 100 percent SBA guaranteed debenture) with a junior lien covering up to 40% of the project cost A contribution from the borrower of at least 10%of the project cost (equity) The SBA s Cleveland District Office can help businesses find a local lender to assist with completing a loan application.

9 Workforce Development resources, cont d Manufacturer s Training Consortium The University of Akron s Medina County University Center and Medina County Workforce Development have joined with local industry, the Medina Career Center, the City of Medina and the Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce to create a strong incumbent worker training program. Founded in 2010, this dynamic industrial business consortium is designed to assist Medina County businesses to become globally competitive by educating the workforce through certified programs leading to two and four year Manufacturing Degrees. The new Manufacturing Training Consortium aims to link trained workers with local manufacturers, making the firms hiring process and the workers job hunts easier. The consortium will set standards for worker skill sets and create a career path for local manufacturing employees. Activities of the consortium will include devising an assessment tool for workers that shows whether workers have the soft skills needed for the local manufacturing field. Skills include team working abilities, basic academic knowledge such as math and problem solving, and personality aspects like reliability and integrity. If the assessment receives approval from the local manufacturers, it will be used for current workers and those searching for jobs. Once the workers pass the assessment, they will receive a certification recognized by local employers. The first phase of this program won t cost anything to the manufacturers or applicants, as the consortium has received a state grant to cover part of the costs to develop the program.
