CA Rebuilding Fund for Long Term Recovery

Join us this Friday October 22, 2021 at 2:30pm PT for the CA Rebuilding Fund Train the Trainer. We’ll go over changes in the program, share outreach strategies and answer questions.

The California Rebuilding Fund is a partnership with public, private, and nonprofit leaders to ensure that California’s smallest businesses can access the resources and capital they need to survive these challenging economic times and thrive during recovery. The program is possiblethanks to a commitment from California’s IBank, with strong support from other State agencies.
