Expanded Gifts & Supporting Local
In an effort to support local businesses and artisans, who have been adversely affected by the restrictions due to COVID-19, the California Welcome Center in El Dorado Hills Town Center is offering complimentary space and tables to promote their products.

Pop-Up Artisans & More” is the program launching March 2 and continuing through March 31, 2021. Guests to the Welcome Center can shop for a variety of gifts and products from local crafters and artists.
NEW PPP FUNDING DEADLINES
Apply by March 31, 2021
In order to reach the smallest businesses, SBA will offer Paycheck Protection Program loans to businesses with fewer than 20 employees and sole proprietors only through Tuesday, March 9, 2021. President Biden has also announced additional program changes to make access to PPP loans more equitable.

This will give lenders and community partners more time to work with the smallest businesses to submit their applications, while also ensuring that larger PPP-eligible businesses will still have plenty of time to apply for and receive support before the program expires on March 31, 2021.

This dynamic and informative publication will now be released at the end of June 2021 with continued distributed throughout the rest of 2021 and into 2022, so it's a great time and opportunity to remind not only the current EDH business community and residents about your business, but also the residents who will be moving to our community!

Remember this publication is mailed to every home and Chamber member in El Dorado Hills, available to new residents, and is promoted online heavily after its print release! And, it's a publication that residents have told us that they refer to often throughout the year!
