(BEDFORD) – Attention local small business owners: if your business has been or you anticipate will be impacted by COVID-19, please complete this form at your earliest convenience.
“We know these are uncertain times. Please know the Bedford Chamber, Lawrence County Economic Growth Council and the Indiana Small Business Development Center (SBDC) are working to support you and your organization,” says Shance Sizemore, CEO of the Bedford Chamber of Commerce.
President Trump has allocated $50 billion to the Small Business Administration (SBA) for Economic Injury Disaster Loans.
For Hoosiers to gain access to this funding, officials need to collect small business economic impact data from Lawrence County so that Governor Holcomb can declare an economic injury disaster.
“We are working diligently with the SBDC to gain access to this funding for you, and we would greatly appreciate your help,” says Sizemore. “Information obtained from this form will only be used to assist in requesting an economic injury disaster declaration from SBA and identifying the greatest areas of need.”
