ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

 

Please read below from the U.S. Small Business Administration:

All federal agencies are working together to protect public health, including the U.S. Small Business Administration. Our agency’s top priority is to ensure Ohio small businesses – which total nearly 950,000 – can continue their contributions to the state’s economy, and our nation.

We are working directly with Governor Dewine’s office to facilitate a disaster declaration from the SBA for businesses to be eligible for Economic Injury Disaster Loans. To expedite this process, we need your help in disseminating the attached Disaster Loan Declaration Form for businesses to fill out. Once you have done so, please email the completed forms to james.laipply@development.ohio.gov

Once that declaration is made and the SBA has confirmed it, the agency will be able to provide Economic Injury Disaster Loans of up to $2 million per small business to assist with economic recovery.

The SBA will continue to support small businesses through this difficult time, and we urge them to visit www.sba.gov/coronavirus and follow @SBA_Columbus on Twitter or sign up for our newsletter for more updates.
