Pacific Coast Regional (PCR) is a private, non-profit corporation founded in 1977 to assist small business owners in becoming successful members of the Southern California business community. Through contracts with the Federal Government, the State of California, and partnerships with private institutions, PCR provides financial, educational and consulting services. In addition, PCR has been certified by the U.S. Treasury as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI). Our primary goal is to help the small business owner succeed.

PCR's financial programs include: Loan Guarantees, Disaster Bridge Loans, and Direct (Environmental) Loans. The only qualification for these loans is that the business is located within the State of California.

Our educational services include: PCR's Lottie Center for Business Excellence, Small Business Seminars, PCR's Small Business Consultants Program and PCR's Small Business Start-Up Guide.


PCR’s newest program is the pilot Metro Business Interruption Fund (BIF) which provides grants up to $50,000 a year to small business owners that can prove business revenue loss due to direct Metro construction on eligible corridor projects.  PCR manages all aspects of the application process and serves as the fund administrator.

If you have an idea for a small business venture, if you're expanding your present business, of if you need assistance or direction, you can take advantage of PCR's many services. You can call PCR at (866) 301-9989 for more information.
