Get Started with the Paycheck Protection Program
For Technical Assistance
African Economic Development Solutions is working with Community Reinvestment Fund, USA (CRF) to make Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans to small businesses and non-profit organizations.
CRF is a mission-driven, national nonprofit lender committed to helping organizations access responsible, sustainable capital.
If you did not receive a PPP loan in 2020, you can apply for a First Draw PPP loan this round.
If you already received a PPP loan, you may be eligible for a second PPP loan called a “Second Draw”.
