This loan program enables people with disabilities the opportunity to work from home or begin their own business. The loan can be used to purchase employment-related items and equipment, such as a computer, desk, or telephone, to even building a home office or workshop. Loan amounts range from $500-$50,000.
Conditions for Telework loans: A Telework Loan is granted if the equipment purchased assists you in doing at least one of the following:
Begin telework for a new employer
Increase income in an existing job

If you have bad credit, your application is still considered. The focus is on your ability to make the monthly payments.
