The Small Business Administration and the Public Private Strategies Institute are providing more aid to help the country’s small business owners recover from the pandemic.
A regional webinar series, “Getting Back on Track: Help is Here,” is designed to provide Main Street entrepreneurs with the information and resources needed to continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. The educational webinars will feature speakers from The White House, the SBA, members of Congress, and small business leaders, and will provide updates on the American Rescue Plan.
The webinar series for Indiana is set for 1 p.m. on June 3.
“The ‘Getting Back on Track: Help is Here’ webinar series is an important outreach effort to help small businesses recover, rebuild and gain resiliency,” said SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman. “Small businesses are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel as marketplaces and main streets reopen thanks to strong vaccination rates.”
Rhett Buttle, Public Private Strategies Institute senior advisor, said the webinars are designed to reach the hardest-hit small business owners across the country with regionally focused conversations connecting them to local resources and to give them the steps they need to recover.
“The program will focus on three key areas: economic recovery and access to capital options, digital tools, and resources to allow small business owners to be vaccine leaders with their employees and communities,” Buttle said.
