NEED HELP? WANT A FREE BUSINESS TUNE UP?

To apply for services, CLICK HERE to request an application. Please submit a budget and attach financial documents to verify the financial affidavit (latest bank statement of startup’s bank account, individual bank account, or latest income tax filing). Each application is confidential and is reviewed for income eligibility, merit of case, and potential to proceed to accomplish goals. We cannot guarantee that we can accept every case.  If you misrepresent yourself, miss appointments or are over income, you will be rejected by the project. You represent yourself until or unless a volunteer lawyer with the project agrees to represent you.
