Several East Valley chambers of commerce have partnered with the U.S. Small Business Administration to hold a weekly information webinar for business owners; the first will be April 9 from 10-11 a.m.

“There is so much information circulating about small business funding. We thought a live webinar would help cut through the confusion, not to mention details are changing daily,” said Terri Kimble, president and CEO of the Chandler chamber, in a news release. “This is a group effort between chambers trying to reach as many businesses as we can.”

The Ahwatukee, Apache Junction, Chandler, Gilbert, Fountain Hills, Tempe and Queen Creek chambers of commerce have banded together to hold the weekly information webinar.

SBA Assistant District Director Jim Pipper will focus on delivering information on how to access programs and funds available to business owners as well as field questions, according to the Chandler chamber.

With President Donald Trump's signing of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES), the SBA launched the Paycheck Protection Program, a $349 billion emergency loan program that provides forgivable loans up to $10 million to small businesses left financially distressed by the coronavirus pandemic. The loans, which will be administered at the local level by a national network of banks and credit unions, are designed to maintain the viability of millions of small businesses struggling to meet payroll and day-to-day operating expenses.
