I've been tasked with tracking down forms that cities use for small business loans. Does anyone know of any cities that do that, or where I could go to look for such forms (other than a bank)?

Lakewood, OH (1st ring Cleveland suburb) just setup a grant fund/program. You should check that out. I'm it could be adaptable.

I looked at Lakewood's program as well. They use CDBG funds which we have some available, but we've not been able to get guidance that it would meet the program requirements. Seattle also has a program but the owners have to qualify as low-mod income, which I would think most of our business owners do not qualify for.

I didn't see this thread until just now. Are you still looking for examples? Our grant and loan deadline passed on Monday but I can send you copies of our applications if you still want them. Just send me your email address in a PM.
