If your company is in financial distress because of COVID-19, please read this message carefully:
CEDF welcomes your lending inquiry, but to avoid creating confusion, delays or false hope we need to clarify that our organization is not a disaster loan provider under programs of the Small Business Administration.
We are not a PPP lender.
Also, CEDF is not able to extend financing primarily on the basis that a business is closed or has significantly reduced revenues as a result of COVID-19.
Despite the COVID-19 shutdown, many businesses continue with their plans for initiating or expanding their operations. CEDF stands ready to evaluate and fund these more routine applications.
This form registers your interest with us and allows us to follow up and answer your questions before you submit a formal application. The inquiry is not a formal application. Once you complete the inquiry form, you will be able to download the application form, instructions and more information about the required supporting documents needed. We'll be happy to help guide you through the process.
