COVID-19: Resources

We’re getting a lot of questions right now about what resources are out there for individuals and businesses. I recommend taking a look at this comprehensive list that Representative Blumenauer’s office is developing and maintaining, for a start: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_vxTr5ze9Po3noASrmc3075x9EMsKZQczUe-QHsWADQ/edit#gid=0

Also, OCF is soliciting applications for nonprofits in need: https://oregoncf.org/grants-and-scholarships/grants/oregon-community-recovery-fund/

For our business clients, business Oregon has some information up at: https://www.oregon4biz.com/Coronavirus-Information/

Here is their Oregon capital access program (mostly loans): https://www.oregon4biz.com/How-We-Can-Help/Finance-Programs/CAP/

Here is the SBA Covid 19 page: https://www.sba.gov/disaster-assistance/coronavirus-covid-19

My guess is that a lot of the federal assistance will come through the SBA in the form of forgivable loans and grants.
