COVID-19 Resources

NOTE:  As the new PPP Loan has rolled out, please protect yourself from SCAMMERS. We encourage you to only work with the bank you currently have an established business account with. Also make sure the bank is a SBA Guarantee Lender. Fraudsters have already begun targeting small business owners during these economically difficult times. Be on the lookout for grant fraud, loan fraud, and phishing. Download the SBA Handout - https://www.sba.gov/sites/default/files/2020-03/SA2001.pdf
