As America continues to recover from the economic impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Trump Administration remains intensely focused on ensuring that small businesses and entrepreneurs have the resources they need to fully recover, prosper, and resume their role as the vital job-creating sector of our economy. President Trump declared September 20-26, 2020 as National Small Business Week. In response to President Trump’s proclamation, SBA is hosting a National Small Business Week Virtual Conference which offers free educational webinars, free business advice, and an opportunity to network with fellow business owners. Individuals interested in the conference can register here.
- As part of the whole-of government economic response to the coronavirus, the Trump Administration has delivered nearly three-quarters of a trillion dollars in timely economic relief to millions of distressed small business enterprises and their employees, including $525 billion in Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans, $190 billion in COVID‑19 Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL), $20 billion in EIDL Advance grants, and additional healthcare funding.
- The Trump Administration worked with Congress to designate thousands of Opportunity Zones in underserved communities, and as a result, continues to create unprecedented new economic opportunities.
