The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is providing low-interest loans to small businesses and nonprofits economically impacted by the Monterey Park shooting and related investigation that occurred January 21-28, 2023.

For business owners that need guidance or assistance in applying for these low-interest loans, the City of Monterey Park, in partnership with U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and Pacific Asian Consortium in Employment (PACE), will be hosting an SBA EIDL Application Support Center.

These working capital loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable, and other bills that can’t be paid because of the disaster’s impact. Disaster loans can help businesses overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing.

DATES:June 5-8, 2023, and June 12-15, 2023 TIME:11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.LOCATION:Barnes Park Service Club

You can also ask questions and receive personalized advice regarding your specific business situation in these languages.
