Dallas County program provides assistance to small businesses affected by COVID-19
Has your small business been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic? The Dallas County Emergency Business Assistance Program (EBAP), funded with $5 million in CARES Act dollars, may be able to assist you. The Dallas County EBAP provides financial assistance to small businesses in Dallas County that lack the financial resources to sustain their business. With the help of EBAP, your small business may be eligible to obtain a forgivable loan, up to $15,000. EBAP Pre-Applications began on Monday, June 15, 2020 and will be available through Sunday, June 28, 2020.
Dallas County selected the National Development Council (NDC) – an SBA-approved small business lender with 25+years of work – to serve as the third-party administrator for the EBAP. NDC is a national economic development nonprofit, working for more than 50 years to increase the flow of investment capital to under-resourced communities.
To apply for financial assistance through EBAP, visit the NDC EBAP website at https://ndconline.org/ntxsmallbiz/.
Funding is not first come, first serve. Due to the high volume of requests possibly exceeding available funding, not all eligible businesses will be invited to submit a full loan application. After the pre-application period closes, NDC will use a randomized selection process to select the eligible businesses that will be invited to submit a full application.
