BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Congressman TJ Cox is hosting a telebriefing to help out small businesses in the Central Valley.

The telebriefing is scheduled for 1:30 to 3 p.m. on Thursday. Those interested in taking part can register here.

Businesses are encouraged to have only one representative call in due to space restrictions.

Earlier this month, the SBA started offering low interest Economic Injury Disaster Loans to California small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of COVID-19. The purpose of this call is for small businesses to learn more about assistance available to them, including disaster loans and the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which have been created to help small businesses.
