The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) is seeking applications from nonprofit groups to serve as certified lenders under the agency’s new Minnesota Emerging Entrepreneur Program.

“These loans will help Minnesotans from communities that have historically struggled to access capital get the resources they need to start or grow businesses,” said Lt.
