Clark County's fiscal year is winding to an end as we prepare to launch a new fiscal year on July 1st. The SBOP team continues to watch new developments with the COVID-19 crisis to gauge how we can best support our small business community during the recovery process.

Although no one can predict exactly what will happen as everyone works toward reopening, one thing is certain, Clark County will continue to serve the public while we work to place training opportunities back on schedule.

If you have questions about how to proceed toward reopening your business be sure to tune in online for tonight's Small Business Tele-Town Hall Meeting hosted by Commissioner Weekly. Below you will find all of the details you need to participate. You will also find information about recently-announced emergency funding sources, and more. Hope you will join in the town hall meeting!
