Hello Everyone - In case you did not see via social media, this SBA webinar has been rescheduled for April 7th, from 10:30-11:30am due to changes to SBA programs as a result of the stimulus bill. The link and call-in number will not change. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me directly at my email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
ALSO...There was some question about needing Champaign County declared an emergency in regard to the SBA disaster loan. If you are completing the application, please list Economic Injury as the reason for the loan if associated with the virus.
The entire State of Ohio (and every state in the U.S.) has been declared a disaster. I have heard that if you selected something other than Economic Injury, then it looks at physical disasters (i.e. floods, tornadoes, etc.) that have been declared. If you go to this site - https://covid19relief.sba.gov/#/ - then it will take you to the application portal. I hope this helps. Thanks,
If your business may qualify for the Small Business Association’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program, we encourage you to join a webinar with Alex Kohls of the SBA’s Columbus District Office on Tuesday, March 31 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. The purpose of this webinar is to walk through the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program, review the application process, and answer any questions. Here is the link to join the meeting and post questions: https://www.uberconference.com/mshimp. The dial-in conference number is (937) 314-3034. No PIN needed.
AND if you are a Champaign County business owner and you haven't filled out the CEP's Business Impact Survey yet, please do so by April 1st at 5pm. Thank you!
