California Launches New Program to Increase Capital Access for California’s Underinvested Small Businesses

San Andreas, CA…Increasing capital access for California’s underinvested small businesses is what the Technical Assistance for Capital Readiness Program is all about. It is backed by $25.3 million in funding from the U.S. Treasury’s State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI). SSBCI is designed to spur investment to businesses with 1-9 employees, small manufacturing companies, and businesses operated by owners from underserved communities.

How the Program Helps Business-Owners:

  • Guides them to navigate the loan process, prepare their loan applications, and determine what loan products, if any, will be the best fit.
  • Builds legal, accounting, and financial management skills
  • Increases awareness of state-backed capital support programs for small businesses applying for capital
  • Designed to spur the approval of new business loans to the state’s smallest and most vulnerable business-owners
