This week, Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, a $2.2 trillion stimulus package, and SBA programs are designed to lead the way in small business recovery. The State of Georgia is laser-focused on economic recovery and appreciates that small business (companies with fewer than 500 employees) are lynchpin to our economy.
On April 2nd, Governor Kemp announced the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, the Georgia Department of Economic Development, and the Small Business Development Centers are partnering to make sure that every small business in Georgia is aware of these programs. You can read the full press release here.
Beginning next week, those agencies will conduct a series of webinars to help explain the small business assistance in the CARES Act. More information about these webinars and other tools to assist Georgia’s small businesses can be found at: https://www.georgiasbdc.org/georgia-small-business-recovery/
