Resources For Small Business

Following is today’s update from the Columbia County Department of Health.

Congressman Delgado’s website has some valuable information for Small Business Owners.

Small businesses owners and those who are self-employed make up the backbone of our economy in NY-19. As a member of the House Small Business Committee, I am working to fight for our small businesses and the self-employed to make sure they have the resources they need during this challenging time. I introduced the Small Business Repayment Relief Act which would ensure that every small business with a qualified Small Business Administration (SBA) loan automatically be relieved of their loan payments—including principal, interest, and fees—for the next six months. This assistance would be a lifeline for hundreds of thousands of American small businesses fighting for their survival over the coming months, including the 27,000 small businesses and self-employed owners in our district.

Further, Congress passed two bills so far to address this crisis, including an emergency supplemental funding bill with loans for small businesses affected by the virus. If you’re a small business owner whose operation has been harmed by the coronavirus outbreak, please contact our office at 845-443-2930 to learn about available resources.
