HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Small business owners can apply for emergency loan assistance through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) here or by calling 1-800-659-2955..

“As the coronavirus creates tremendous uncertainty for our area’s companies, business owners, and working families, we must take serious steps to mitigate the tremendous economic hit our region’s businesses might take in the coming weeks and months," Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D - Henrico) said. "I’ve already heard directly from employers who are being forced to make difficult management decisions, and they’ve made clear that emergency loans are urgently needed to make it through the many uncertain days ahead."

The loans are available to small business owners across the Commonwealth.
