SBA to host webinar series for small businesses

Home COVID-19 SBA to host webinar series for small businesses

SBA webinar seriesWashington, D.C.—The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the non-profit Public Private Strategies Institute will kick off a new regional webinar series, “Getting Back on Track: Help is Here,” to provide Main Street entrepreneurs with the information and resources they need to continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization said. The educational webinars—which kick off this month—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, according to the association.

“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 Isabella Casillas Guzman, SBA administrator. “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. We are empowering small businesses to reopen fully and safely by connecting them with helpful resources and tools, including the Biden Administration’s tax credits that cover paid time-off for employees getting vaccinated. We all must double down on our efforts to help our beloved small businesses survive and get our economy back on track.”

The webinar series is 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 build back better, according to the organization. Rhett Buttle, senior advisor, Public-Private Strategies Institute, said 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.

According to the SBA, the new webinar series builds on a successful national educational program hosted by the SBA and Public Private Strategies Institute, highlighting the Biden Administration’s action to create additional access to the Paycheck Protection Program for America’s smallest businesses. That webinar series provided resources and information to more than 80,000 small business owners across the country.
