Thank You for your interest in SCPDC Corona Recovery Loans.
PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE EMAIL BEFORE APPLYING. INCLUDED IS GUIDANCE ON HOW TO USE THE ONLINE APPLICATION AND MAKE THIS PROCESS AS EFFICIENT AS POSSIBLE.
We are working to assist our Regional small businesses as we lead up to greater recovery efforts as the COVID 19 disaster progresses. Offering this bridge loan is a small step in what will hopefully become a large-scale response as we anticipate working with our State and Federal partners to participate in future comprehensive recovery funding related to small business loans. Please note that we are using our existing loan funds (which are somewhat limited) to offer these loans, and we do not have the financial backing of the Federal Government. These loans are not associated with SBA and are NOT forgivable, and we are unsure as to how this may trigger duplication of benefits related to SBA loans. They are meant to be a “bridge” to get you to the next phase of funding.
