Clicking on the Apply Now button above will take you to the pre-application that will screen for basic eligibility and, if eligible, will match you with a local community lender (your CDFI).
Once matched, your community lender will request the submission of a full loan application, which will ask you to provide the following documentation:
Please note: Additional documentation may be required by the community lender at or after the time of the application in order to approve or underwrite your loan.
Once these documents are received, the community lender will conduct any credit checks and finalize the application review process. If you need support accessing the required documentation, please contact 833-ASK-SBDC or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Resources Section.
Due to a limited amount of funding availability and the high volume of applications expected, it is anticipated that not all eligible applicants will be able to receive a loan. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and will be managed to support the program’s goals. The time it takes to process an application will depend on the volume of applications received by the matched community lender. Please note that submitting an application is not an indication of eligibility and does not mean that a loan will be approved or funded.
We recommend applying as soon as possible.
