Policy of Paycheck Protection Program Loan
Because we are one legally recognized organization, SCORE chapters are not able to apply for loans under the Federal Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program or any other Federal program. If a chapter is having cash flow issues related to the COVID-19 health crisis including lost revenue from workshops, please contact the Headquarters’ accounting staff (
). The Headquarters’ staff is working to collect data on the impact of COVID-19 on the chapters (attach form). Chapters are encouraged to conduct online workshop, apply for private grants, and/or apply for other public grants to help offset lost revenues.
Best Practices: Virtual Meetings at SCORE
Chapters are finding new and creative ways to use technology to help clients and communicate with volunteers. We want to hear your best practices for mentoring clients, hosting workshops, onboarding/training volunteers or any other new ideas and processes you’ve developed.
Reminder: Make Sure Your Work Telephone is Forwarded
As everyone is sheltering in place, make sure your voicemail and phone lines are forwarded to your “shelter in place” work location. If you are unable to access your SCORE Office phone lines to forward, please change your chapter phone number in CORE to the national call number and we will be able to filter calls for you. The phone number to change to would be: (800) 634-0245.
This includes all chapter lines that are advertised as contact lines in marketing and online, so clients can find you quickly and easily.
Did one of your SCORE Volunteers test "positive" for COVID-19?
It is your duty to notify the rest of the chapter members that someone tested positive and share what SCORE engagements they participated in during March.
DO NOT SHARE THE PERSON’S NAME.
in case of any protocol questions or concerns.
