Committed to Service
It is with the utmost sincerity that we extend our thoughts and prayers to everyone that has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We understand that our communities and businesses are facing unseen challenges that have caught many completely off guard.
Although there has been a wealth of resources and support from foundations, banks, local, state & federal agencies, the load of information that is being released can be overwhelming at best. For that reason we have created a centralized resource guide for small businesses. Because we support clients in Michigan and Illinois, we have posted resources for those areas. However, we have also shared some resources that are available nationally.
UPDATES & RESOURCES
We strongly urge business owners to take advantage of as many programs as feasibly and responsibly possible. Should you have any issues with navigating these resources, please reach out to us. We will help in the best way that we can FREE OF CHARGE!
Here are a few general tips:
Don't wait to apply, capacity & demand is high right now. Waiting could mean missed opportunities to receive support.
Be on the look out for scams and predatory lenders! A good rule of thumb is if it sounds too good to be true....it probably is!
Take time to figure out your ask and don't ask for more than you need! Many products are forgivable if used for a designated purpose.
Don't be afraid to ask for HELP!
