The New York Forward Loan Fund (NYFLF) is a new economic recovery loan program aimed at supporting New York State small businesses, nonprofits and small landlords as they reopen after the COVID-19 outbreak and NYS on PAUSE.
The NYFLF targets the state’s small businesses with 20 or fewer employees (90% of all businesses), nonprofits and small landlords that have seen loss of rental income.
CPC will be administering the loan fund for small landlords under the NYFLF guidelines.
The NYFLF is providing working capital loans so that small businesses, nonprofits and small landlords have access to credit as they reopen. These loans are available to small businesses, nonprofits, and small landlords that did not receive a loan from either the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) or SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) for COVID-19 in 2020. The loans are not forgivable in part or whole. The loans will need to be paid back over a 5-year term with interest.
Access to loans for small landlords will be targeted to owners with residential buildings of 50 units or less, and will prioritize loans for landlords whose properties are in low and moderate income census tracts or who serve low to moderate income tenants.
Priority will be given to industries and regions that have been reopened. This is not a first-come, first-served loan program. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis as regions and industries reopen.
For small businesses and nonprofits that are in industries and regions that are not yet reopened, you are encouraged to prepare your pre-application in advance by taking advantage of the application preparation resources available here. This will allow you to quickly submit your pre-application once it is announced that your industry and region is phased to reopen.
Pre-applications opened on May 26, 2020 at Noon Eastern Daylight Time and will be on a rolling basis thereafter as regions and industries reopen.
