Upcoming Small Business Informational Webinars

Business Information Session for Rural Entrepreneurs


The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) – Springfield, MO Branch Office, and SBA Resource Partners are hosting a series of small business informational webinars. There is no fee to attend these webinars, but pre-registration is required!

PPP Direct Forgiveness & COVID-19 EIDL Webinars:

Are you a small business owner and have questions about SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan Forgiveness and COVID-19 Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL)?

If the answer is yes, this is a must attend event.

Attendees will learn about the PPP Direct Forgiveness Portal and the COVID Revenue Reduction Score which may eliminate the documentation requirement for 25% revenue reduction on PPP Second Draw loans $150,000 or less (for loans that receive a pass score from SBA). In addition, attendees will also learn about SBA’s COVID-19 EIDL. This low interest disaster loan could be of particular interest to small business owners as they focus on recovery. Qualified small business borrowers may receive up to $500,000 EIDL loan at 3.75% 30-year fixed rate. In addition, applicants for the COVID-19 EIDL may be eligible to receive up to $15,000 in funding from SBA that does not need to be repaid. The application deadline for the SBA’s COVID-19 EIDL is 12/31/2021.
