MetroAction is an affiliate organization of The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce—the largest regional Chamber in northeastern Pennsylvania. Our organization has forged strong partnerships with area business development agencies, financial institutions, and community development organizations to amplify our impact on the communities in which we live and work.
Our team works directly with small businesses to connect them with partners that can assist them in starting or growing their small business. One-on-one counseling is our specialty.
In 1997, a consortium of local financial institutions collaborated to provide capital to start MetoAction’s first revolving loan fund. MetroAction utilized this investment as a catalyst to capitalize its revolving loan funds.
