Connect is a Small Business Development Center (SBDC) — part of a network of centers designed to help small businesses, and it is partially funded by the Small Business Administration (SBA).
If your business has been negatively affected by the current COVID-19 Public Health Emergency — the SBA is deploying funds, and an advisor at a local SBDC center can help you apply.
Signup with the SBDC.
We are able to help you for free by collecting information periodically about your business. Your information will always be kept private.
Submit your application here, click New Client Signup on the left.
Once you sign up, you will be matched with an SBDC financial advisor who can help navigate the SBA Disaster Loans and other disaster assistance.
