For starters, many of us are qualified to receive help from the Small Business Administration in the form of disaster assistance loans. Here’s a link to more information about the program: https://www.sba.gov/offices/disaster/dfocw/resources/1658272. The deadline to apply is Dec. 16, 2020.
The State of California also has this great website for your questions under the Financial and Technical Assistance for Small Business area of their website at https://business.ca.gov/coronavirus-2019/.
Women-owned businesses can also find resources from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) at https://www.wbenc.org/covid19.
For the next several weeks and possibly months, we’re going to go through so many changes and our sanities will be tested. However, we can get through this and remember, there are resources, help, and guidance out there for all of us. We just need to weather the storm by staying in, staying safe, and helping to flatten the curve. We’re strongest together and we hope that you all stay healthy and happy.
