We hope that everyone is staying healthy and well during this turbulent time. With support from the Oregon Small Business Stabilization Fund, the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians Economic Development Corporation has established an Emergency Forgivable Loan to assist Native-owned small businesses with COVID-19 relief efforts. Emergency Forgivable Loans will range from $1,000 up to $5,000. Funds are limited, and most loans will likely be $1,000 to $2,000. Actual loan amount will be determined by the loan review committee.

Because of the source of funds, Covid-19 Response Emergency Forgivable Loans are currently open for small businesses operating in Oregon. We are working to expand these funds, and identify new sources to support small businesses throughout the ATNI Region..
