Assistance available for small business affected by storm

The North Central Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and SCORE offices at Central Lakes College are available to assist in the recovery efforts of small businesses affected by the recent storms.
The SBDC and SCORE have counselors available to work with business owners to assess the long-term impact of the storm to their business and to develop recovery plans so they can get back on their feet as quickly as possible. 
“Some businesses are suffering financial losses from the storm, whether they had physical damage to their property or not,” said Greg Bergman, SBDC director. “Being able to recover financially can be difficult for many impacted small businesses. We are there to help them through that process.” 

Business counselors can help document losses for insurance claims, work to develop long-term recovery business and marketing plans, and help organize information to obtain financing needed for business operations.
