To assist customers in understanding and accessing financial aid support launched to mitigate effects of the COVID-19 crisis, the International Market Centers legal and government affairs team is offering summaries of key government relief programs. IMC organizes the Atlanta Market, Las Vegas Market and High Point Market.
The summaries detail eligibility and provisions, and provide links to applications. They cover a range of programs including: small business paycheck protection program; disaster assistance loans and advances; other types of SBA assistance measures such as SBA access to capital and exporting assistance; employee retention tax credits; unemployment insurance and pandemic unemployment assistance.
Help with the financial aid support comes after IMC and its new digital division, IMC_di, offered free subscriptions and transactions for customers through year-end on ShopZio, its B2B digital platform.
“IMC is committed to supporting our customers throughout the COVID-19 crisis,” said Bob Maricich, IMC CEO. “We hope these easy-to-digest summaries will help business owners navigate the process related to securing government assistance during these unprecedented times.”
