Delgado to Hold Small Business Webinar this Friday
RHINEBECK, NY – This Friday, July 17 at 4:30 p.m., U.S. Representative Antonio Delgado (NY-19) will hold a webinar on Facebook Live with the Small Business Administration (SBA). Congressman Delgado will be joined by the Upstate New York Branch Manager for the U.S. Small Business Administration, Jeffery Boyce. Mr. Boyce also serves as SBA’s Project Officer for the New York State Small Business Development Center (SBDC) network. Also joining the event is Dr. Arnaldo Sehwerert, the Regional Director of the Mid-Hudson Small Business Development Center. The webinar, titled “SBA – Helping Small Businesses Start, Grow, Expand and Recover” will focus on recent changes to SBA programs for small businesses, and provide resources on how businesses can apply for these programs. One of the programs, the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), will stop accepting new applications on August 8, 2020.
As a member of the House Committee on Small Business, Rep. Delgado has worked to elevate the voices of small businesses across New York’s 19th Congressional District during the COVID-19 pandemic. In March, Rep. Delgado introduced the Small Business Repayment Relief Act, to cover six months of loan payments for all qualified SBA loans. This was signed into law as part of the bipartisan CARES Act. Recently, Rep. Delgado voted for the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act, signed into law on June 5.
Additionally, Rep. Delgado introduced the Prioritized Paycheck Protection Program (P4) Act which would allow smaller businesses, with significant losses due to COVID-19, to receive a second forgivable PPP loan. The Congressman also helped introduce the bipartisan Small Business PPE Tax Credit Act which would provide a tax credit of up to $25,000 to help small businesses offset the cost of PPE including installing plexiglass and purchasing masks to protect their employees and customers.
