“Our small businesses are facing an unprecedented disruption due to the COVID-19,” stated chamber president Mitzi McCormick. “At the Chamber, we have adapted to a new way of reaching our members and disseminating information. We’re offering this webinar to provide an opportunity for businesses to interact directly with the SBA and a lender.”

Martin Short, lead economic development specialist for the US Small Business Administration, will navigate attendees through the Economic Injury Disaster Loans and other SBA relief options. A representative from Carter Bank & Trust will discuss the Paycheck Protection Program and documentation needed to apply.
