1.
Assess your needs.
Look at your financials, and project your short and long-term business needs. From there you can determine if accessing relief funding is right for you.

2.
Act NOW.
Funds are available on a first come, first served basis.

3.
Apply.
For the Payment Protection Program (PPP), which are potentially forgivable loans to pay for salaries, apply online to the bank where you have an account.

For an Economic Injury Disaster Loan or Grant, apply online to the SBA.

4.
Hitting road-blocks? Find a local CDFI.
If you do not hear back from someone or find yourself ineligible, seek out support from your local Community Financial Development Institution (CDFI). A list to search by zip code is available on OFN.org.

5.
Educate yourself about everything available.
Explore this detailed guide from the National Association of Women Business Owners for more information on what relief is available, and this guide from our Foundation. Check the Tory Burch Foundation website frequently as information is changing rapidly.
