What is the Loan Application Assistance Program?

The Loan Application Assistance Program aims to provide support to nonprofit organizations as they are navigating the CARES Act previsions and explore their options for financial aid.

Our team of volunteer technical assistants are trained to provide guidance as nonprofits apply for the CARES Act loans. We are doing our best to provide the latest updates and be aware of the constantly changing information.

The support provided is free of charge and is available to any non-profit organizations. For profit businesses are encouraged to contact us.

Inland Empire nonprofits are some of the first organizations to respond in the event of a crisis and that is the case in the Coronavirus outbreak.  In an effort to support nonprofits and for profit organizations the IECC in partnership with Caravanserai Project has collated and curated the following resources we hope you may find useful in completing the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

LAAP is a service, free of charge, “as is”; and does not constitute legal or financial advice. We try to provide quality information, but we make no claims, promises or guarantees about the accuracy, completeness, or adequacy of the information contained in or linked to this Web site and its associated sites. LAAP should not be used as a substitute for the advice of a qualified legal or financial professional.

This service is not intended to create, and receipt of it, does not constitute a client or patient relationship.

The LAAP is an initiative developed by the Inland Empire Community Collaborative and Caravanserai Project.
