City hosts workshop on federal financial resources

Monday, July 20, 2020 by Tai Moses

The Economic Development Department and the San Antonio office of the federal Small Business Administration are teaming up to offer a free online workshop on “federal financial resources for businesses, nonprofits and self-employed individuals impacted by the global Covid-19 pandemic. Topics include recent revisions to the Paycheck Protection Program and the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program, along with an opportunity to ask questions on program eligibility.” Veronica Briseño, the city’s chief economic recovery officer, said in a news release that the recent Covid-19 Business Impact Survey, done in partnership with the Austin Chamber, showed that the pandemic continues to have “severe financial impacts” on small businesses and self-employed people. Because of that, she said, it’s critical that local employers and entrepreneurs are able to take advantage of federal and local disaster relief programs “during this unprecedented time.” The virtual workshop is Thursday, July 23, from 3-4 p.m. Register on Eventbrite.
