Now, more than ever, our commitment to community remains strong.
Right now, our local businesses are in great jeopardy and we’re focusing our efforts on helping them. Our President, Nancy Proyect, is part of a team organized by the Orange County Industrial Development Agency to provide a comprehensive approach to Covid-19 for small businesses located in Orange County. The team has been walking companies through the process of applying for Cares Act funding; administering an Orange County Funding Corporation local lending program; and hosting webinars to provide information to small businesses on policies, regulations, and new ideas for doing business during the crisis and in a new normal. To date, the team has helped over 140 companies and that number continues to grow. It’s sometimes difficult to hear the difficulties our fellow community members are going through, but it’s very rewarding to help our local small businesses – the backbone of Orange County’s economy. We stand with them, and will continue to advocate and support.
You can watch all past webinars now, including the one above, by going to the Orange County IDA’s website.
