RALEIGH – We know that business owners have questions about what options are available to them to address the impact of COVID-19. The U.S. Small Business Administration is now offering low-interest federal disaster loans for working capital to North Carolina small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of the virus.

Join us online on Tuesday, March 24 where you will hear from Patrick Rodriguez, SBA senior area manager. He will provide a high-level overview of the SBA disaster loan program. He also will explain the criteria for different loan amounts and will be available to answer the questions that you may have.

Get answers to these key questions:

  • What businesses are eligible to apply for loans?
  • How much businesses can borrow?
  • What are the collateral requirements?
  • What are the filing requirements?

Our discussion will get started at 3 p.m. You can join using this GoToMeeting link.

The SBA is encouraging all eligible businesses to apply quickly. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn directly about the options available to help your business.
