Application Process is Closed

Applications are taken on a continuous basis; however, funds are awarded on a first-come, first-certified, and first-served basis. Grant funds are provided with no payment schedules as a fifteen-year loan. Six point seven percent of the grant is forgiven per year, so that at the end of fifteen years, the loan has a zero balance and is 100% forgiven.
