Brightbridge Capital To Provide Limited Time SBA CARL Loan
Tuesday, July 28, 2020
In a Federal Register Notice published July 15, the Small Business Administration has developed a new, temporary Community Advantage loan product, Community Advantage Recovery Loans (CARL), to provide technical and financial assistance to existing small businesses in underserved areas. CARL loans will assist eligible businesses with retooling business models for the COVID-19 environment and its aftermath.
BrightBridge Capital is an approved provider of the CARL loan in North Alabama, North Georgia and Tennessee.
Along with resource partners, including the Small Business Development Centers network and SCORE, BrightBridge will provide technical assistance tailored to each borrower.
BrightBridge president Mike Ohlman stated, “We believe that the technical assistance requirement along with funding to support the retooling of business models in response to the pandemic will guide participating businesses through this difficult period. We have developed many beneficial relationships with bankers and we expect this initiative will be especially helpful for referring banks and their customers.”
In order to receive a CARL loan:
• Qualified applicants must have their loan applications submitted and approved by Sept. 27; and
• Loan amounts must range from $50,000 - $250,000.
