As a result of a meeting on April 6th with the Greater Sacramento Economic Council (GSEC), El Dorado County, and El Dorado County Chamber, the El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce a Small Business Guidance Webinar. We shared some of the concerns and confusion that we are hearing from you, and GSEC offered this as a solution.

This webinar, with El Dorado County CAO Don Ashton and Supervisor John Hidahl, will include Board Leaders from GSEC to directly answer your questions. The primary goal of this program is not to go over program summaries, but to answer and address some of the more technical questions we are hearing from small businesses.

Please send us questions you'd like addressed during the webinar by the GSEC Board and Economic Development Directors. We'll see you on Zoom.

Small Business Paycheck Protection Program: A new lending program that allows businesses to borrow enough to cover monthly payroll costs for businesses for up to 2.5 months. If used for payroll, mortgage interest or other qualified expenses, these loans will be forgiven as long as the employer continues to employ its workers or rehires them when they reopen for business.

Criteria and applications for the fund will be available soon for all of our western slope small businesses .
