NOTE: Portal is currently not accepting inquiries from California entities. Keep checking!
The County of Los Angeles in partnership with Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses initiative and Community Reinvestment Fund, USA (CRF) has created a new application portal for small businesses seeking to apply for the federal Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), a forgivable loan product created by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
The online portal opened April 15th and can be accessed at https://crfusa.com/sba-paycheck-protection-program-loans-from-crf/
- Business owners who access the application portal will initially submit an inquiry with CRF.
- Business owners should be prepared to provide information on their business.
- After successfully submitting an inquiry, loan processers at CRF will follow up directly with business owners to obtain necessary documents and information to process the loan request.
All eligible business owners who have been unable to apply for a PPP loan through a bank or other financial institutions are encouraged to submit an inquiry.
