Join the Wisconsin Small Business Development Center (WSBDC) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Extension for a webinar about the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) business support programs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on small businesses. This session is specifically for farmers/farm businesses wanting to learn more about the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL). The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, May 12, 2020 at 2 p.m.
Kristi Smith, Business Consultant with the WSBDC, will speak to the two programs and the technical details of submitting applications. The PPP requires working with a lender with a SBA relationship. Farmers must apply for the EIDL directly through SBA’s online portal. Ms. Smith will discuss how to work with these programs and how to navigate the online system. She can provide tips on the application process to lessen technical frustration.
The CARES Act and other recent legislation pertaining to the COVID-19 crisis makes available SBA financial assistance to farmers through the EIDL and PPP programs. Because of this, everyone is experiencing a steep learning curve.
