FROM THE OFFICE OF THE CITY MANAGER MEDIA CONTACT: Patrick Walker, Public Information Officer
firstname.lastname@example.org FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 6, 2020
North Las Vegas, Nevada – The City of North Las Vegas is pleased to announce four new programs aimed at providing relief for City residents and businesses experiencing hardships related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The City hopes to expand these efforts with CARES Act funding and continues to work with the Governor’s Office and State and Federal elected officials to secure North Las Vegas’ fair share of funding.
For residents, the City is teaming up with local non-profits to provide the following programs:
Additionally, the City of North Las Vegas has created a Small Business Stabilization Forgivable Loan Program. North Las Vegas-based businesses with 20 or fewer employees may qualify for forgivable loans of up to $25,000 at zero interest in an effort to mitigate losses experienced by our small business community. Learn more about the program here.
The City is able to provide all four programs using Community Development Block Grant and Emergency Services Grant funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). For more information about the programs, please click here.
“These programs are a great start and will be very beneficial to the residents of our City,” Mayor Pro Tem Isaac Barron said. “However, there is a much greater need for financial relief for the residents of Ward 1 and North Las Vegas — Nevada’s largest minority-majority city and one of the municipalities hardest hit by COVID-19 — which is why equitable funding for our community is so critical.”
North Las Vegas was one of only four cities left out of the state’s plan to distribute Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) dollars it received from the U.S. Treasury to Nevada’s cities and counties with populations under 500,000.
“Being left out of the distribution has created an even greater and more glaring disparity for our communities of color, which have already been subjected to systemic inequality for far too long,” said Councilwoman Pamela Goynes-Brown, who represents Ward 2. “That includes under-funding programs and a lack of equal access to economic opportunities. Our residents deserve and demand more.”
The coronavirus has had a disproportionate effect on communities of color. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, African Americans are five times more likely to be hospitalized for COVID-19, and Latinos are four times more likely. Additionally, at the onset of the pandemic, two-thirds of the people who died from complications related to COVID-19 in North Las Vegas were African American.
Nationwide, a Brookings Institute analysis shows that African Americans are twice as likely to die from COVID-19 as Caucasians, and when adjusted for age, those rates soar even higher for both African Americans and Latinos.
Additional resident and business relief programs are crucial during and after this pandemic so that we may provide ongoing critical support services to help residents and business owners with rent, child care, utilities, payroll, PPE, and other essential needs.

In efforts to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact on the small business community, the SBA and Treasury Department have announced $10 Billion in additional funding. This additional funding will be exclusively for Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI’s) to provide funding for small businesses participating in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
The purpose of a CDFI is to expand economic opportunity in low-income communities by providing access to financial products and services for local residents and businesses. As a CDFI, Prestamos will continue working to expand its work on providing economic opportunity to the communities we serve through the PPP. By providing small businesses with access to financial resources and services, we are able to help provide them relief through the uncertainty.
The PPP is a forgivable financial loan meant to provide assistance to businesses to help retain their workforce and remain in operation. Throughout the funding phases, Prestamos has already provided $10,623,689.73 in direct PPP services to 302 local businesses in Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada. This funding has helped to preserve 1,644 jobs and keep businesses open. As is known with Prestamos, our services go beyond financial products. We are dedicated to creating opportunities for business owners to inform themselves on best practices and solutions for success.
Knowing that the PPP is a forgivable loan, Prestamos has worked closely with our team to ensure that businesses have what they need to navigate the process. From the application phase to life after the loan, we have equipped borrowers with the information they need to make sure their loan is forgiven. This information has helped prepare these businesses with tools to ensure they are following protocol and are in compliance to get the loan forgiven, if applicable.
At Prestamos CDFI, we are here to help you with any needs your small business has. We offer a variety of loan products and business consulting programs to help your business grow and succeed.
