Due to privacy laws and confidentiality laws, we cannot share specific geographic location of individuals; however cases have been in both western and eastern Nevada County. That being said, our Public Health Department does reach out to indiviudals directly who may be located in areas near to known cases.

I applied for a SBA Disaster Loan, but there was nowhere on the applicaiton to provide an how much $ I needed, cash flow projections, or justifications of funds needed. It seemed super strange. Did anyone else have this experience?
Lynn Saunders
21:08
Can non-profits apply for an SBA Disaster Loan?
Nate Rangel
21:46
Audio dissapeared when you mentioned acceptable credit score. What specifically was/is that score?
emilycoven
22:18
The one-page did not have anywhere to estimate what the injury would be. The PDF online has that, but the online application didn’t have anywhere to document that.
emilycoven
23:17
Thank you!
Andy Burton
23:36
The changes that were made on the SBA Disaster Loan site make it a much better process.

Carrie Ann Smith
29:55
isn't 6 months more realistic?
amber
32:11

Prior to laying our staff off we advanced them their sick leave and vacation. Is this something we can be reimbursed for through the paycheck protection program, assuming it passes?
Deb Foxen

thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge
Gretchen Bond
01:02:23
Understood and yes it would continue to accrue.
Andy Burton
01:02:24
Engage employees at developing a plan to survive through the challenge period, and how to make the cash last. Poll for voluntary reductions in hours, PTO, sick time, etc. Make it a group plan wherever possible.
