Dear Residents, Friends and Constituents of DeKalb,

It has been a busy week in District 7. I am proud to announce several approaching Town Halls and events that will provide critical information for DeKalb County residents. Please join me and our new Superintendent Cheryl Watson-Harris for a Countywide Town Hall to discuss how best to equip your student as they prepare for virtual learning this fall. We will provide critical updates on virtual learning, best practices, and county guidelines. Additionally, we will discuss the digital divide and what is being done to ensure no student is left behind. We will receive live questions from the audience during this Town Hall.
As always, I am here to serve and am available for virtual community meetings and Town Halls. I welcome every opportunity to connect with those I represent across DeKalb. Please continue to practice social distancing and exercise care for our community, as we are One DeKalb.

Your Commissioner,
Lorraine Cochran-Johnson, M.P.A.
Super District 7, DeKalb County

Wells Fargo $400 Million Small Business Recovery Effort

To help accelerate the recovery of small businesses, Wells Fargo will donate approximately $400 million in processing fees from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to help small businesses keep their doors open, retain employees, and rebuild. Wells Fargo is donating gross PPP processing fees and is not keeping any portion of the PPP processing fees.

Through this new Open for Business Fund, Wells Fargo will engage nonprofit organizations who serve diverse entrepreneurs to provide capital, training, and long-term recovery efforts.

Applications are now being accepted from Community Development Financial institutions (CDFIs), nonprofit lenders and special purpose funds formed by CDFIs with an emphasis on serving racially and ethnically diverse-owned businesses.
