Funding Request Program


It's our job to help you prepare for financing. By facilitating the process of finding a loan for your business, the Funding Request Program (FRP) does just that. Developed through our relationships with lenders by business consultant Dale Clack with The RION Group, the FRP process saves time for all parties. Lenders get important decision-making information quickly on one page and you save time in searching for funding sources.

There is no monetary cost associated with the program. During an initial meeting with an SBDC financial consultant, we will assess your business financial condition by reviewing up to three years of financial statements and federal income tax returns and benchmarking with your industry. If you're a start-up, we will assess your readiness, financial literacy, dedication to the FRP process, ability to borrow and economic feasibility of your business. Finally, you will consolidate your business and personal financial documents into a one-page form provided by our team. The form will be sent to our lending partners anonymously on your behalf and you'll receive feedback within several days.
