In the wake of a disaster, small businesses often are more financially vulnerable than large businesses. Small businesses are the backbone of local economies, providing essential goods and services such as groceries, fuel, childcare, and healthcare. It is important, therefore, that economic development organizations plan to provide additional assistance to small businesses following a disaster – particularly to address cash flow and capital shortfalls. Join IEDC as this webinar explores the many financing avenues post-disaster to assist small businesses.

Attend this to access:

• Tips and strategies you can emulate in your community to financially assist small businesses
• Techniques from professionals who have experienced the struggles of a disaster
• Avenues of financing beyond the typical post-disaster funding
