The Illinois Small Business Development & International Trade Center (SBDC/ITC) has updates about disaster assistance resources available to small businesses during Coronavirus (COVID-19). Three important changes have recently taken place:
1. The Small Business Administration (SBA) disaster assistance loan website has been improved to make application processing easier.
2. The Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (DCEO) announced hospitality emergency grant and small business emergency loan programs.
3. The Small Business Survival Guide has been updated to reflect recent changes and provide other valuable information to help businesses stay open.
