AEDC is as committed as ever to assisting our North Country small businesses, especially in this recovery from the public health epidemic. Our ongoing business counseling and loan products are available to help!

Two updates have been released by the Small Business Administration (SBA). The Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program is re-opened and can provide long term, low-interest loans to small businesses (including non-profits). The Payroll Protection Program (PPP) has been reauthorized with changes, including longer time period to use the benefits (through end of year) and a lower proportion (60%) required to be used for personnel costs.  Please contact Stephanie Donaldson sdonaldson@aedconline.com for more information about these programs which are accessed through the SBA. 

As always, all of our business counseling is at no cost. AEDC can help you manage short-term solutions and priorities and planning for positioning to thrive as the  economy reopens. We are also working closely with many regional partners who have great information and access to other resources and are happy to connect you to what may fit best.
