Disaster Recovery

Resilient Recovery Loan (Hurricane Dorian, Florence, and Matthew)

Resilient Recovery loans are Thread Capital’s new long-term loans designed to meet the extended challenges faced during a business’ disaster recovery, including repairing physical damage and recouping from more significant economic losses. Resilient Recovery loans are intended to ensure the business is fully stabilized and is able to handle future economic shocks. Terms are up to $250,000 for up to ten years.

This is NOT a grant program. Resilient Recovery loans were created to make sure the business is fully stabilized and in a better position to recover from future storms. As such, eligibility for funding is contingent on documentation of storm damage from a declared natural disaster. Funding is provided on a first-come, first-served basis.



Rapid Recovery Loan

The North Carolina COVID-19 Rapid Recovery Loan Program supported North Carolina small businesses and family farms as they recovered from the economic impact of COVID-19. This rapid recovery loan helped small businesses bridge the gap between when crisis strikes and when federal loans and other relief funds are approved, or businesses have time to recover.

NC COVID-19 Rapid Recovery loans were not designed to be a singular source of assistance for small businesses. Repayment was expected either from more permanent funding sources or from the future cash flow of the business.

The application period for the NC COVID-19 Rapid Recovery Loan Program has now ended.
