Business Spotlight
Uncle Lar's Pizza

Uncle Lar’s was established by Norma and the late Larry Albright in 1983. What started out as pick-up only eventually grew to offering delivery and dine-in services. It has always been and continues to be a family owned and operated restaurant. In November 2017 Jerry and Selaine Stegmann took ownership of Uncle Lar’s keeping the same famous recipe that the Albright’s passed down.

PPP Loan Forgiveness Application
The PPP was created by the CARES Act to provide forgivable loans to eligible small businesses to keep American workers on the payroll during the COVID-19 pandemic. The documents released today will help small businesses seek forgiveness at the conclusion of the eight-week covered period, which begins with the disbursement of their loans.

Downstate Small Business Stabilization Act
The Downstate Small Business Stabilization component has been established to provide working capital funds to community’s businesses economically impacted by the COVID-19 virus.
The program component makes funds available for 60 days of verifiable working capital up to a grant ceiling of $25,000 and is available for businesses that employ 50 people or less. Number of employees includes the business owner(s). These funds may be used to assist private for-profit small retail and service businesses, or businesses considered non-essential by the Governor’s Executive Order without the ability for employees to work remote

If you have any questions, please reach out to me! I'm also reaching out via phone to discuss this opportunity with our local businesses.
