Join us to learn about the California Rebuilding Fund, a new program built to support California’s smallest businesses as they adapt, reopen, and recover from the effects of COVID-19. This program has been built in partnership with public, private, and nonprofit leaders across the state to ensure that California’s smallest businesses are able to access the resources and capital they need to get through these challenging economic times.
This loan fund will make flexible, affordable loans to small businesses with 50 employees or fewer through participating community lenders. The loan fund will accept applications starting in the coming weeks on the website (https://www.connect2capital.com/partners/california-rebuilding-fund/). Loan terms and eligibility will be clear and transparent.
CAMEO is excited to join Calvert Impact Capital, IBank, Kiva, Small Business Majority, and so many other partners*. Our role is to ensure the small business service providers, both lenders and business assistance organizations, have the info they need to help their clients access the funds.

This is a train-the-trainer and is not aimed for small business owners. All staff and consultants who are client facing should attend this training. Once the program is up and running, Small Business Majority will be spearheading an outreach campaign to inform small business owners on everything they need to know to access the program.
