2. iBank the California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank has a Small Business Disaster Relief Loan Guarantee Program to supplement businesses, non profits and more who did not receive Federal Disaster Loans or are experiencing impacts due to COVID-19.
For example, if your business or organization received a letter from the Small Business Administration stating your "Economic Injury is not substantiated," the iBank Program is another option to find financial hardship assistance.
The loan works by iBank collateralizing or "guaranteeing" a loan, so that a local bank would receive 95% of the loan value in repayment if a business goes into default before repaying. In essence, the program allows for a local business to more likely be approved for a loan and at potentially more favorable rate.
A PDF resource guide is HERE for the Business Disaster Relief Loan Guarantee Program.
In addition, iBank released an easy to use loan eligibility to help determine which financial relief programs you’re eligible for as a Business, Self-Employed, Non-Profit, Veteran's Organization, Tribe, or Independent Contractor, a link to the Loan Tool is HERE
