It’s been over a year since COVID19 shut down our country and millions of small businesses. Since then, Congress has approved billions of dollars for Small Business relief and recovery. The SBA through many financial institutions have funded billions of dollars through the Payroll Protection Plan (PPP) loans. In addition, the SBA has made the Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) available to all.  We are slowly seeing signs of recovery as our economy is slowly re-opening.  The following Business Check Up Series virtual workshops are still accepting registrations:
