The state of Florida has allocated up to $50 million for the state’s Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program. This is a short-term loan designed to help business owners bridge the gap between the time of impact and when the business has secured long-term assistance.
Eligible businesses can visit this website to apply directly online.
Florida SBDC business consultants are available to assist small businesses through the loan application process and with other COVID-19-related challenges at no cost.
Regardless of whether or not your business needs a bridge loan, all small businesses should still complete the Florida Business Damage Assessment survey.
