UAH-based organization offering free webinars on small business loans
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - If you’re a small business owner trying to get the help you need, some of the answers are on your laptop.
The federal government passed a series of loan options in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Hillary Claybourne is the director of the northeast Alabama office, which is located at the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce but works with UAH.
Each webinar is uploaded onto the website for later viewings, but she said the changing updates mean each installment has a limited shelf-life.
“The challenge is as soon as it comes out of our mouth and we finish researching and everything, they change the goal posts and it moves down a little bit and changes things," she said.
Small businesses can sign up for the webinars on the SBDC’s website, and Claybourne said there’s been a high demand.
“We’ve run out of space several times, we did the same one three days in a row with a 1,000 people and had it full," she said.
Claybourne can be contacted at SBDC@UAH.edu.
