Members -

I hope this email finds you well!

Our What's Hot Wednesday email has looked a bit differently the past couple of weeks due to our efforts toward social distancing in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Unfortunately, we don't have many events to share here BUT we encourage that you continue supporting local businesses and organizations during this time, if you can. We have included an update below on how local businesses are managing during this time.

Below are some resources that small businesses may be interested in learning more about. The New Prague Chamber will continue to keep you updated as new information becomes available.

***Executive Order 20-15: Emergency help for business owners affected by the temporary closures under Executive Order 20-04 and 20-08 who do not have enough cash flow to meet their basic family needs --> https://mn.gov/deed/newscenter/press-releases/#/detail/appId/1/id/424384. Applications will open up later this week. For more information on the specifics, please visit --> https://mn.gov/deed/business/financing-business/deed-programs/peacetime/

*** The U.S. Small Business Administration is now offering low-interest loans for working capital for Minnesota small businesses and non-profits suffering losses related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Applicants may apply online, receive additional disaster assistance information and download applications at https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela
