In mid-March, as Arizona began to implement public health and safety measures, our community’s small businesses began a long hard uncharted road that continues to be difficult to navigate. The journey continues as COVID-19 mitigations are still a critical part of containing this pandemic, but we at CIC would like to take a quick pause to give incredible thanks to those who helped support our emergency response work in the first few months of this crisis. 

With the support of Tucson Helping Tucson and generous corporate, foundation, and individual donations, CIC was able to provide substantial support to the smallest of small businesses with over $424,000 in loan capital to over 34 small business owners. Additionally, expert insight and counsel was provided to over 108 small businesses. 

Review our impact report below. We are grateful beyond measure to be able to serve the community in this way and are continuing to identify critical needs as we work to build and rebuild a more just economy.
