FLEX FUND UPDATE
Thank you for your interest in the Metro Atlanta Flex Fund program. We were pleased to have received numerous applications for the initial loan funds, and we made loans to applicants who satisfied the program requirements. At this time, we will not accept applications for the program because we have exhausted the funds available for the initial round of funding. We fully anticipate securing additional funding and will announce when those funds become available. Please monitor the website here as we will update this notice to advise when applications will be accepted for loans in the future.
