Hardship and Emergency Loan Program from the Arizona Persian Cultural Center

The Center Supporting Community During Closure

Arizona Persian Cultural Center(AZPCC) is here to support our community the best way possible. Our physical location has been closed since March 11th and it will remain closed for as long as needed. While our psychical location is closed, The Center is actively supporting community.

Hardship and Emergency Loan Program (H.E.L.P.)

Iranian American Society of Arizona (IASAz) is a non-political, non-religious and non-profit organization. We join together to enrich the lives of Arizona residents by promoting an awareness of the Iranian culture, heritage, language, history and contributions through education, music, dance, theater, art, food and sense of community.

With this in mind the Arizona Persian Cultural Center has created an emergency fund to help members of our community who have lost their source of income or are experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID19 pandemic.
