AAEN COVID19_APA BUSINESS ADVOCACY WEBINAR #1
COVID-19 Small Business Assistance Explained
In collaboration with National ACE and GREY, the Asian American Executive Network.
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has severely impacted thousands of small businesses owned and operated by Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders throughout the U.S. Many AAPI small businesses are not aware of federal programs and services that are available to assist them in during this period of uncertainty.
“Recently Congress passed with full bipartisan support, a federal $2.2 trillion stimulus, and relief package to support small businesses throughout the United States,” said Chiling Tong, President, and CEO of National ACE. This package is known as the Cares Act and includes a variety of loan packages and grants to help small businesses recover from the severe hardships created by the Coronavirus pandemic.”
Keynote Speaker - Robert Steiner, Illinois District Director of the Small Business Administration (SBA) will be on hand to provide the latest information on the Small Business Guidance and Assistance Programs. This information will be applicable to all businesses and non-profit organizations across the nation.
