Capital Program

COVID-19 Update:

We have paused new applications to the Capital Program until further notice. We administer our Capital Program through a National network of CDFIs. Unfortunately, due to the impact of COVID-19, the CDFI’s are not able to process and/or administer our current applications. As you explore other financing options, in the current economic environment we would urge caution around personally guaranteed loans and encourage business owners to seek non-recourse loans and grants. We remain committed to directing you to the best available resources during this time. Please refer to our list of resources and Financial FAQs. We also host weekly public webinars to support small businesses navigating the COVID-19 crisis. We wish you health and safety during this difficult time.
