SBA Disaster Relief Loans

March 18, 2020

Dear Members,

The Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to bringing you resources and information to ensure the economic health of our small businesses.

Primarily, we encourage all businesses to follow County Public Health Department’s COVID-19-related guidance to the public.

Please take the time to look at Small Business Association’s Disaster Loans Program. San Luis Obispo County will be eligible for SBA loans this Friday, March 20. County officials have assured us that the SBA website will be updated accordingly. We recommend affected businesses get started on their applications NOW to get your loan processed as soon as possible.

There are three steps involved in obtaining this loan. Find more detailed information here.

1. Apply online for a loan of up to 2 million

2. Verification and loan processing decision

3. Loans approved and disbursed

If you need any assistance in filling out your application or general guidance contact the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce.

Here are some additional resources for business owners and employees:

- California Employment Development Department

- Cal/Osha Guidance Page

- Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development

- Labor and Workforce Development Agency

- US Chamber of Commerce Business Guidance

- US Chamber of Commerce Resource Page

- Labor and Workforce Development Agency

The Paso Robles Chamber is working with the Small Business Association to host a webinar to help businesses secure the assistance they need. Keep a look out for more communication on the matter.

As of Wednesday, March 18th the County of San Luis Obispo has issued an executive order to residents to shelter in place effective 3/19 at 5pm. Please pay attention to updates from County and City officials.

Thank you all so much for your patience and grace during this stressful time. The Chamber will continue to provide resources and information for our members as the situations evolves. #PasoStrong
