HEDCO wants to share this information to small businesses.  This was received from the local Small Business Development Center.  Feel free to share.


Dear SBDC Stakeholders and Partners-

Below is an email that we sent to SBDC clients this morning with important information about the PPP loan program.  There is still over $130 billion available to small businesses through June 30th. 

Every eligible small business and sole proprietor in Upshur, Gregg, Rusk, Harrison, Marion and Panola Counties that needs a loan to recover from this economic crisis should be encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

Banks have made over 4.5 million SBA guaranteed PPP loans over the past 2 months.  This monumental accomplishment is truly amazing, and we are already seeing the positive effects in the economy.  The business advisors of the UT Tyler-Longview SBDC are available to answer questions, help with applications and introduce applicants to PPP lenders. 

Thank you for your help in getting the word out to your constituents.
