For Small Businesses



Launched in April 2021, the Southern Opportunity and Resiliency (SOAR) Fund provided affordable financing and free business support to services to eligible small businesses and nonprofits across the southern and southeastern United States to help them rebuild from the COVID-19 pandemic.
