The King-Lincoln District (KLD) Retail Development Program offers EZ financial resources to interested entrepreneurs and experienced retail managers interested in owning a small retail business on the commercial corridors in the King Lincoln District.

This program will benefit the Empowerment Zone by redeveloping idle property, adding new businesses and services, and providing business ownership opportunities for residents.

This program, geared to small and start-up businesses, is designed for the Compact to take the majority of the business investment risk, in partnership with a business operator who will provide sound management and operation of the retail business.
