CORONAVIRUS SMALL BUSINESS SUSTAINABILITY

& RECOVERY LOAN PROGRAM

WHAT'S AVAILABLE:

The City of Hallandale Beach CRA is reopening applications for the Coronavirus Small Business Sustainability and Recovery Loan Program effective Thursday, May 7, at 12:00pm.    A large number of applications received when the program was opened in April did not meet the program’s requirements.  As a result, a portion of the $500,000 designated by the CRA Board to fund this program remains available.
There are two different loan options offered under this program. Eligible businesses may apply for one of the two available loan programs, not both.
Please remember your business must be located and registered within the boundaries of the Hallandale Beach CRA to be considered for these loan programs.
Applications must be submitted with all of the required documents. Applications found to be missing required documentation will be considered incomplete and not processed.
