02 Apr Government support during shelter in place
Our businesses who have had to abruptly close their doors and reduce their workforce to comply with local, state and federal orders to shelter in place are facing unscripted challenges and potential financial ruin. There are some resources from the San Francisco Office of Economic and Workforce Development, the State of California, and the federal government (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security or CARES Act). There is also some helpful guidance from the private sector about navigating the time-sensitive options that may be available (thanks to Dowell Group), and in particular (thanks to Jones Lang LaSalle) the Paycheck Protection Program Loans .
As we learn about additional aids or updates for small businesses we will post them here. Our local businesses are the lifeblood of our community, we miss you, and want you to be healthy and successful.
