The DC Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD) is debuting the #BuildBackBetterDC digital learning series for small business experts and owners to share insights and resources with you during these unprecedented times.
DSLBD Innovation and Equitable Development Program Manager Kate Mereand speaks with Omar Velasco and Daniel Friedman from the Latino Economic Development Center (LEDC) on the Paycheck Protection Program, the new deadline of August 8, 2020, and how small businesses like sole proprietors, solopreneurs, and gig workers can also take advantage of this potentially forgivable loan.
LEDC is a local community development financial institution and is currently accepting applications for the Paycheck Protection Program, a potentially forgivable loan from the Small Business Administration.
