Now more than ever, Accion Serving Illinois & Indiana is working hard to creatively respond to the COVID-19 pandemic that threatens the health of small business owners, employees, customers, families, and communities.
We’ve partnered with numerous government entities, corporations and foundations to offer various loan and grant options to entrepreneurs to help them through the pandemic. Over the last few weeks, the Accion team has been working around the clock to serve as many entrepreneurs as we can, as quickly as possible.
Applications for the Illinois Small Business Emergency Loan Fund are no longer being accepted at this time.
Accion is processing the thousands of loan applications we have received for the federal, state, and local emergency loan programs for which we are a lead lender, which we describe here.
Our goal is to provide $60M in grants and loans to over 3,000 small business owners by May 31st. We will once again accept new applications when we have finished evaluating and funding the applications we have already received.
