SBA Disaster Loans Now Available for Kansas Companies
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has begun offering emergency disaster loans for Kansas businesses today in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The SBA will work directly with state governors to target businesses and nonprofits most affected by Coronavirus. The low-interest loans can provide up to $2 million through the SBA's Economic Injury Disaster program. See the news release from the Kansas Department of Commerce here.

If your business has experienced losses or been impacted by COVID-19, please apply as soon as possible.

The Chamber will be hosting an information session via Facebook Live with the Wichita District Director at US Small Business Administration, Wayne Bell on Monday, Mar. 23 at 8:30 a.m. CST.
Wayne will provide a deep dive into the program and how to apply. Please email us any questions that you would like answered in this session.
