Attendees will be able to ask the panel questions directly and receive business support and the latest information related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Topics include loan and disaster financing options, unemployment information, operational guidance, government updates, additional upcoming webinars and more.

They’ll go over the most frequently asked questions we’ve been seeing, and then you’ll have a chance to ask questions to the panel,” said Tiffany Henry, director of the Small Business Center. “Instead of spending hours reading through documents online or trying to find the answer to something specific, you can get the information you need quickly and upfront.”
