Government Assistance Loan

Awakon has taken a stance to be proactive in assisting our community members who have been financially impacted by the government shutdown. We are offering a Zero percent interest loan for community members who expect repayment once the government has resumed. For those with government contracts who do not expect repayment, we are offering an additional low interest option to get them back on track.

To qualify for this assistance you must live, work, worship, attend school in, or own a business located in the Northernmost Eight Counties of Lower Michigan, which include; Presque Isle, Cheboygan, Montmorency, Otsego, Alpena, Emmet, Charlevoix, and Antrim Counties.

Applications can be accepted in person and over the phone. Credit Bureaus will not be affected if applied for in this format.* Proof of income, deposit, furlough, or employment status will be required.

Call 989-733-8557 for assistance or stop in to any of our locations.

With locations in Onaway, Rogers City, Indian River, Wolverine and Gaylord.

*If you apply online, this will result in a hard credit pull. Some restrictions may apply.
