Where to Go for Help and Updates - March 2020
Business owners can go to a few sources for information on Loan program assistance with the State of Illinois as well as the Small Business Administration (SBA). There is also a Chicago program announced on March 19, 2020.
Demand will be quite heavy for any SBA loans. If your business is in Chicago, Lori Lightfoot is raising funds for small businesses up to $3mm in revenues. Consider making a donation to the fund that benefits those greatly impacted.
Please share this information with business owners.
Best of luck to everyone.
