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. 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.
Your first step is to submit the inquiry form below. This form registers your interest with us and allows for follow-up. The inquiry is not a formal application.
Once submitted, you will be able to download the application form, instructions and more information about the required supporting documents needed. Our lending department can only act on fully completed application packages.
