March 18, 2020 Update from JCEDC Executive Director, Tracy Brantner:
🔸 We know many businesses, communities, and individuals are just trying to meet basic needs at this time. JCEDC is prepared to assist businesses and communities by sharing the most-needed pertinent information and resources. That said, like everyone, we are still learning our role. If you have a need or question and you don’t know who else to contact, please just write or call us.
🔸 The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) counseling services are available at JCEDC. This challenging time is hitting local small businesses hard. If you have a business that is, or will be, affected by the COVID-19 situation, please contact JCEDC to receive some information regarding resources that may be available to relieve the situation. For example, the opportunity to apply for a direct SBA Disaster Loans will soon be available.
🔸 Please let us know where assistance is needed and we will do what we can to help. While we are working to put our best effort forward, we know there will be challenges. We look forward to finding our way forward together.
