BALTIMORE, April 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives representing Maryland's 7th Congressional District, will host a webinar with information about financial relief for small businesses that struggled to find resources under the CARES Act. This free webinar is open to the public and will allow local business owners to gain valuable information and ask questions of the panel.
"Small businesses employ nearly half of the private sector workforce in America and they are struggling. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) includes funding to help keep these essential businesses afloat during such a difficult time, but it has not yet reached enough of the people it was intended to support. I want to make sure people in the 7th District have the information they need to access financial assistance.
The relief package provides a total of $367 billion for payroll protection in the form of forgivable loans through the Small Business Administration. Sadly, many neighborhood businesses say it is difficult to access this funding. I pulled together a panel of experts who understand small business and our community. They are here to help neighborhood businesses learn more about the application process for financial assistance under the CARES Act, as well as other sources of support."
