Help is on the way! The NIACC Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center, North Iowa Area Small Business Development Center (SBDC), North Iowa Corridor EDC, and other community partners have launched a small business help-line to assist business owners in navigating the array of government resources. 

Information is available regarding the Federal Coronavirus Relief programs including those contained in the CARES Act such as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL), and other SBA programs. Small business owners have been overwhelmed with constantly changing information, and the goal of this help-line is to provide a reliable source to answer the business owner’s questions and direct them to their next step.

Business owners may call 641-422-4737 Monday through Friday, 9AM-4PM or email at
