CWB Financial Group’s online application for funding takes approximately 25 minutes to complete once the appropriate information has been gathered. Review the list of questions in advance, so that you don’t get stuck along the way. If you do, you’ll have access to your incomplete application for 90 days, so you can save your work and return to it when you’re ready.

Once your application has been submitted, you will receive a confirmation email within the hour. We’ll conduct a preliminary review of your request and provide an update on the status of your request by email within 2 weeks. The review process for requests for less than $25,000 takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks.
