CONSIDER AMENDMENT NO. 3 TO A CONTRACT WITH THE CALIFORNIA COMMUNITY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION, A NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION (C-20-044), TO PROVIDE ASSISTANCE TO CARSON BUSINESSES IN APPLYING FOR LOANS MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE CITY'S CORONAVIRUS SMALL BUSINESS LENDING/GRANT PROGRAMS (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

At the February 16, 2021 Mid-Year Budget Review, the City Council discussed the status of the City's COVID Small Business Loan Program and gave direction to staff and the program administrator, the California Community Economic Development Association ("CCEDA"), a California non-profit organization, to continue to process loan applications currently in the pipeline but to not seek to sign more businesses up for the program.

The Council appropriated enough money to finish out the loan pipeline and to amend the CCEDA contract to cover the Technical Assistance, underwriting, packaging, and closing of these loans. CCEDA was also administering the City's CDBG-funded Small Business Grant Program, and those files are now being transferred to City staff to complete the process with the current applicants. This item is to consider Amendment No. 3 to the agreement with CCEDA for another $30,000 to complete these tasks.
