IS THERE A CHARGE TO PARTICIPATE?
No, webinars are offered free of charge.



One-on-One Counseling Sessions


The LACDA’s free one-on-one consultations are designed to prepare small businesses for the Small Business Stabilization Loan Program, which will be launched in January 2021. Attendees will meet with a local technical assistance provider who will offer personal guidance on the application process, ensure attendee meets minimum eligibility criteria, and verify the attendee has all documentation needed to submit a successful application.

To qualify for a one-on-one consultation, a business MUST first attend a webinar on “Applying for an Affordable and Flexible LACDA Loan.”
