The Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce is hosting free webinars to help local small businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic apply for financial assistance.
The webinars will focus on helping businesses apply for the Small Business Administration Disaster Relief Loan. Georgia has received a disaster declaration from the Small Business Administration (SBA), making small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic eligible for low-interest federal disaster loans to help weather the loss income and pay off the debt, payroll and other expenses caused by the pandemic.
Under the guidance of Alex Warner, existing industry project manager at Forward Forsyth and the Chamber, local businesses can find out if the loan program is right for them and guide participants through the stages of applying.
The webinar will run from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24 and from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 26. Register at www.together4foco.com/webinars.
