Community and Cultural Relief Loan Program


This is a challenging time in our country.  In response to the needs of businesses being deeply impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Caesars Foundation of Floyd County (CFFC), in partnership with the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana (CFSI) and One Southern Indiana (1si), have launched  the Community and Cultural Relief Loan Program, a zero percent interest revolving loan to support those forward-facing public businesses hardest hit by the COVID-19 crisis; locally-owned and -operated restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, boutiques, retail and salons.  The purpose of the loan is to keep these small businesses viable through the COVID-19 pandemic and on the road to recovery. As a revolving loan fund, payments made toward loan balances will be used by the Caesars Foundation of Floyd County to assist future emergency needs for small businesses.  For further delineation of requirements, see eligibility guidelines on application.
