Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Technical Assistance

  • Government Programs

Applying for loans under the new Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) can be confusing and time-consuming.  In partnership with Insights 3, Co.act Detroit, Opportunity Resource Fund, Apparatus Solutions, and  Community Reinvestment Fund (Detroit), we are excited to offer two pathways of support to simplify your submission process. To find more PPP resources, visit here.

Pathway 1:

We recommend this path if you are a nonprofit and your bank is not taking PPP loans.  Pathway 1 is a partnership between the City of Detroit, the Community Reinvestment Fund (CRF), and Apparatus Solutions.

Step 1: Complete a questionnaire.

Step 2: Receive a welcome email to create a secure login to the application portal.

Step 3: Prepare and upload required documentation with support.

Step 4: Submission of the loan through the Community Reinvestment Fund.

Technical assistance from Apparatus Solutions includes: determining if you qualify for a PPP loan; calculating the maximum loan amount; application and documentation preparation; and, loan submission through the Community Reinvestment Fund.

Pathway 2:

This path is best for nonprofits that did not apply for a PPP loan in 2020 or if you need help applying/submitting your Second-Draw PPP loan to your bank.

Step 1:  Set up a technical assistance appointment through our portal (see below).

Step 2:  During the appointment, you will be guided through the loan application and documentation process.

Step 3:  Upon completion of the application, we will help submit your application to your bank or, if your bank is not accepting PPP loan applications, to the Opportunity Resource Fund (a nonprofit SBA qualified lender).

Click here to set up the technical assistance appointment and begin Step 1.

* Any registered nonprofit in Michigan is eligible to participate in either pathway.
