A loan officer works with you to provide all the necessary information needed to reach a loan determination. Our goal is to arrive at a decision on your application within 2 - 3 weeks. A loan officer will contact you to discuss the loan recommendation and your next steps. You will also be advised in writing of all loan decisions.

Once we receive your signed Loan Closing Documents, an initial disbursement will be made to you within 5 days: Physical damage: $25,000 Economic injury (working capital): $25,000 (In addition to the Physical damage disbursement) A case manager will be assigned to work with you to help you meet all loan conditions. They will also schedule subsequent disbursements until you receive the full loan amount. Your loan may be adjusted after closing due to your changing circumstances, such as increasing the loan for unexpected repair costs or reducing the loan due to additional insurance proceeds.
