Expert guidance on pandemic recovery funding is just a phone call away for thousands of struggling businesses in Colorado and Washington state thanks to innovative services provided by Poudre River Public Library District and Spokane Public Library. Join these ULC members on June 8 at 2 p.m. ET to learn how they partnered with government agencies to provide vital financial guidance to populations that extend far beyond the libraries' typical service areas.
Including both presentations and open discussions, this webinar will offer you a chance to learn from experts about how libraries can help local businesses, nonprofits and entrepreneurs understand and make informed decisions regarding available COVID-19 relief funding. The presenters will share insights about how librarians are uniquely prepared to help disadvantaged populations navigate the CARES Act's PPP/EIDL loans, unemployment assistance, loan forgiveness for businesses and assistance for undocumented families.
This program is free to ULC members, yet registration is required.
