About this loan program

The San Diego County COVID-19 Small Business & Nonprofit Loan Program (SBNLP) is a collaborative initiative designed to provide low-to-no-interest loans to small businesses and nonprofit organizations and aid in the region’s economic recovery from the coronavirus. This loan program was launched by County of San Diego Supervisor Nathan Fletcher in collaboration with The San Diego Foundation, Mission Driven Finance, Accion Serving Southern California, the San Diego & Imperial Small Business Development Center Network, and the California Southern Small Business Development Corporation.

Missed the nonprofit deadline?

While the official deadline was July 7, nonprofits are encouraged to explore SBNLP nonprofit criteria and submit an application. Should we have funding left after the current batch of applications are reviewed, we will consider the next set of applications received after July 7. If we don’t have funding left, we will still review the next set of applications to see if we can make connections to other sources of capital.
