CBA PA Small Biz Grants Walk Through and Q&A
July 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Monday, July 6, 2020 | 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
It’s clear from the eligibility requirements and program priorities that the PA Small Business Grant will not be available to every business. But the CBA’s ongoing communications around this opportunity revealed anxiety in the network around creative businesses’ ability to access these resources, despite experiencing economic hardships related to the pandemic. This anxiety grows from the potential inability to provide the required documentation. For example, a number of creative businesses have operated as sole proprietorships for years, but do not possess the Fictitious Name Registration and/or Government-Issued Business License requested in the grant application.
In this webinar, we will walk through the application and address some of the obstacles and explore possible solutions for creative businesses trying to access these resources. Marlene Van Nelson of Trellis Legal and Richard Longo of Duquense SBDC will join to provide technical insights on challenges encountered by creative businesses in the application process.
Webinar participants are strongly encouraged to take the next few days to (1) start the application, (2) begin gathering the necessary documentation, and (3) make as much progress as possible. In this way, the webinar will address targeted questions that relate to application realities.
