Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, will host a webinar on Wednesday, October 14th at 11:30 a.m. The webinar will navigate small businesses through the emergency Covid-19 legislation congress passed last spring. Participants will be provided the opportunity to ask Congresswoman Waters and her staff questions.
Despite federal assistance, the ongoing pandemic and necessary COVID-19 social distancing restrictions have made it increasingly difficult for small businesses to survive. As a result of these challenges, Congresswoman Waters will explain the legislation passed this year to help businesses and talk about the range of federal programs available.
Congresswoman Waters has been on the frontlines, leading the Democratic Caucus in crafting legislation to address the devastating economic impact of the coronavirus on our nation’s small businesses. As a result of legislation Congress passed this year, our district (CA-43) received $1 billion in Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans, according to data provided by the Small Business Administration (SBA).
This webinar will also highlight the chamber’s Small Business Program, ‘Elevate’, as well as co-chairs Minal Mondkar, Aura Seating and Connor Hartwell, Hartwell Financial Services.
