The San Diego & Imperial SBDC is partnering with the Federal Reserve on the 2020 Small Business Credit Survey. This survey reaches thousands of small businesses like yours and provides vital information to policymakers who are weighing decisions that affect small businesses. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and is open to businesses currently in operation, those recently closed and those about to launch. The questions ask about business conditions, financing needs, and the effects of the pandemic on your business. All responses are confidential.
 
All of us at the San Diego & Imperial SBDC Network know this public health crisis is hitting you, the small business owner, very hard. Know we are here to help. We are still providing all our services, just online. You can still visit www.SDIVSBDC.org and click "request counseling" to get assistance.
 
Make sure you watch out for scams and predatory lending. During times of crisis, it is hard to take the time to verify what are real and legitimate options. That is why we are here to help you - as always, our business counseling is free to you.
