Dunn Energy Cooperative supports economic development in its service territory and works closely with economic development groups and chambers of commerce to retain, expand, and attract businesses to our communities. 

USDA Rural Economic Development Loan Program (REDLG)

The co-op participates in the Rural Economic Development Loan Program through the United States of Agriculture (USDA). REDLG is a zero-interest loan program used to help fund local business projects that will create or retain jobs in rural areas. Funds can be used for business financing (buildings, improvements, etc.), infrastructure (sewer, water, streets, rail), health care (hospitals, clinics, assisted living), business incubators, and educational facilities.
