BOSTON — SBA’s New England Regional Office is hosting a series of virtual Town Hall events to outreach to underserved communities and raise awareness about getting approved for Paycheck Protection Program funding by the June 30th deadline

Three Town Hall events will be held this week, highlighting local leaders sharing their vision for how to rebuild the community after the crisis – and local entrepreneurs sharing their best practices and ideas for reopening. 

I am excited to announce this town hall series. Our goal is to reach out to the entrepreneurs throughout the underserved communities of New England to make sure they have the tools and resources they need to survive and thrive during and after the pandemic.  We truly are stronger together,” said Wendell G. Davis, New England Regional Administrator, U.S. Small Business Administration.

Virtual events will provide resources on accessing capital and re-opening support from community-based organizations, lenders, and other non-profit organizations.
