COVID-19 Disaster Relief Programs

SBA provides low-interest disaster loans to businesses of all sizes, private non-profit organizations, homeowners, and renters. 
Businesses that plan on seeking an SBA emergency loan should fill out this form and turn it into TDEMPARecovery@tdem.texas.gov. This form is not required, but is a convenience in clarifying the supporting documentation the state is required to submit to the U.S. Small Business Administration when requesting an Economic Injury Disaster Loan Declaration. This information in any other format would also be acceptable.
When SBA Disaster Loans are available, small businesses will need to apply directly to SBA’s Disaster Assistance page https://www.sba.gov/funding-programs/disaster-assistance

The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. SBA will forgive loans if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities. The Paycheck Protection Program will be available through June 30, 2020.

For more than 21 years, LiftFund, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has helped individuals achieve the American Dream by providing small business lending to those who do not have access to capital from typical lenders, such as traditional banks.  Along with vital small business loans, LiftFund provides educational services at no cost to borrowers, which are essential to foster self-sufficiency.

People Fund

PeopleFund provides small business loans as well as business assistance and education to people with otherwise limited access to such resources.  Since being founded in east Austin in 1994 as Austin Community Development Corporation, PeopleFund’s financial and educational assistance has helped create thousands of jobs and empowered an even greater number of Texans on a path to financial stability and independence. PeopleFund is a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and operates as a non-profit 501(c)(3) serving all of Texas.
