As the COVID-19 pandemic enters its second year, a wide array of federal, state and local programs have been enacted and extended to help small businesses survive and adapt. Four local libraries and chambers of commerce are teaming up to help the business community stay informed about these continually evolving programs.
On Tuesday, May 4th from 9:00-10:30 a.m., the Evanston, Glenview, Skokie and Wilmette Public Libraries, in partnership with the Evanston, Glenview, Skokie and Wilmette/Kenilworth Chambers of Commerce will host “The State of Small Business Assistance,” a panel discussion featuring representatives from the federal and state governments as well as a small business advocacy organization.
Join representatives from the offices of U.S. Rep Jan Schakowsky; Illinois Rep. Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz and Elliot Richardson, President and co-founder of the Small Business Advocacy Council (SBAC) as they provide updates on the progress of small business assistance initiatives and ways they can help small businesses continue to meet the challenges of operating during the pandemic.
Registration for this virtual event is free and open to all.
