Small Business Recovery

The California Rebuilding Fund

The California Rebuilding Fund is a public-private partnership that brings flexible, affordable capital and free business support services to small businesses across California. The loan program offers low-interest loans to small businesses and focuses on reaching borrowers in economically disadvantaged and historically underbanked areas of the state. The Fund is anchored by a commitment from the California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank (IBank).
