About MetroAction

Our Mission

“Promoting small business growth and community development in northeastern Pennsylvania.”

MetroAction is a non-profit community development organization dedicated to providing small business loans and business development assistance throughout northeastern Pennsylvania (NEPA).

Since 1997, MetroAction has been committed to providing flexible small business loans to start-up and expanding small businesses. Our team has closed over $6 million in loans and provided thousands of hours of counseling to businesses located in northeastern Pennsylvania.

MetroAction is more than just a lender. Our team works hand-in-hand with our loan applicants and borrowers to provide the support needed to grow strong, thriving businesses in our community.

We are one of the only non-profit organizations in northeastern Pennsylvania authorized to provide microloans to small businesses through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). We are certified by the United States Department of Treasury and accredited by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI).

Formed in 1977 to revitalize the local community, MetroAction is now a leading Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) that provides loans, training and counseling to help build small businesses throughout nine counties in NEPA.

Our Board of Directors is committed to meeting the needs of the local communities that we serve. Whether your business is in Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Honesdale, the Poconos, Milford, Stroudsburg, Jim Thorpe, Pottsville, Hazleton or the many other communities in our service area, MetroAction’s programs can help you start smart and grow strong.
