The discussion will focus on the assistance available to help our small business, and non-profit communities begin recovering from the Coronavirus. The Rockland County Office of Economic Development & Tourism, Rockland Community College’s SBDC (Small Business Development Center) and the Rockland Business Association are preparing to help businesses address the impacts of virus-related closures and business disruption including SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans. These loans can be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that can’t be paid because of the disaster’s impact. The interest rate is 3.75% for small businesses and 2.75% for non-profits. The panel will also highlight additional resources that are available on the local, state and federal level.
