It’s true Congress passed a relief bill containing $350 billion in aid for small businesses. This is clearly a lot of money. But with 30 million small businesses in America more will be needed. Below is a listing of other potential sources of aid that may be able to fill in some of the gaps. If you do plan to apply for assistance you can apply through any existing SBA lender or through any federally insured depository institution, federally insured credit union, and Farm Credit System institution that is participating. Due to the anticipated unprecedented demand do not delay in seeking assistance.
