On Tuesday April 28, 2020, State Senator Tony Hwang is hosting a unique “The CARES ACT, PPP & PUA LISTENING Town Hall” for business owners and self-employed individuals to talk about the challenges they are facing due to drastic changes caused by public health declarations enacted during the health crisis.
In anticipation of the second allocation of funding through the federal Small business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Senator Hwang wants to provide a forum to share real stories of what is happening to businesses and how programs like the PPP or CARES Act are helping or lacking. We are hopeful this program provides a “voice” for our local small businesses that were denied approval or even access to federal stimulus funds to be heard and get the support and relief help that they need.
