Through the University of Georgia’s 17 Small Business Development Centers (SBDC), in conjunction with the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) and Department of Community Affairs (DCA), the state has launched an information website to provide guidance on accessing a variety of U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) programs.
Beginning April 6, these state partners will host a series of web-based information sessions tailored to each region of the state. In addition, SBDC will be available to assist businesses, where necessary.
Follow the link below, for more information on these web sessions, lending partners, etc. See comments for a link to the full press release from Governor Brian Kemp's office.
We're working with Governor Brian Kemp, the Georgia Department of Economic Development and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs to provide education and resources on the funding allocated for small businesses by the CARES Act.
