Coachella Valley SBDC: Latest COVID-19 Info for my Network Partners

March 18, 2020

Hello Everyone,


This is a fast moving situation, and the SBDC is staying on top of the latest developments on both a federal and state level regarding resources available to small businesses impacted by COVID-19.


I thought you might be interested in knowing more so I have attached the latest SBDC Resource Guide for COVID-19. This version was released last night and contains new information, in case you have seen a previous iteration of this guide. Not only will this guide help you personally understand everything available, but it can help your clients and their employees find the SBA and State of CA resources they need in one handy, well written document complete with links to necessary forms, web sites, etc.  Please feel free to share it digitally with clients and their employees, stakeholders and others in your business network.

How SBDC consultants can help: 

I, and the other 60+ consultants in my region, have all of the forms required for the online Economic Injury Disaster Loan submission. We will provide them to your clients and guide them through the preparation so that they’re ready to “upload” as required by the online loan process. This saves the client a lot of stress and anxiety. If you prefer to coach them through it, let me know and I will send the forms package to you. We’re all on the same team.


My aim is to help your business clients not only with the pressing need for a financial cushion, but to work with them on the fundaments of their business (operational efficiency, financial projections, Sales/Marketing) that are all important as part of the effort to keep their business solvent and enable them to survive this economic instability.

Feedback welcome. If you wish to reach to reach me, please use email and I will respond as soon as I can. Send your clients my way and I will make sure either I or someone appropriate on my team helps them.
