A participating Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) lender will reach out to the loan applicant to collect the required documentation, conduct any credit checks, and finalize the application review process.
Due to the high expected demand, the number of New York Forward loans will be limited. Applications will be reviewed on rolling basis as regions and industries are phased to reopen. Please note that submitting an application is not indication of eligibility or that funding will be approved.
We therefore recommend applying as soon as possible. In the event the website is overwhelmed, we recommend checking back often to submit your pre-application.
