There are a couple of free resources that can be utilized by business owners, especially in a time of crisis. These individuals are not the direct contacts for unemployment or lending but can be a source of guidance.
- Small Business Development Center (SBDC): Their focus during this unique and challenging time is helping small businesses with a tactical plan, cash flow issues, and connecting them with the resources that may be of help. Virtual appointments may be scheduled by calling 706-622-2006 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Other resources are available at https://georgiasbdc.org.
- Our local SCORE representative can be a virtual resource as well and can be reached at James.McKnight@scorevolunteer.org.
