*Cork North CEB piloted a move from Measure 1 Grant Aid to an interest Paid Small Business Loan Scheme in 2000. In conjunction with the Credit Unions in the area, Cork North CEB operated an Interest Paid Small Business Loan Scheme under which the CEB client was provided with a Credit Union loan in respect of eligible capital costs but the CEB, by way of contribution/assistance towards the client project covered the interest charges arising. The CEB implemented this form of assistance as a move away from direct financial assistance to softer forms of support such as mentoring and training. In 2008/2009 the Board re-evaluated local needs and requirements and in 2009 returned to direct grant-support/issue.
