WASHINGTON, D.C. – Nevada Senator Jacky Rosen, a member of the Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee, launched an online resource portal Monday to assist small businesses in Nevada affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The resource portal, which can be accessed on the Senator’s official website, is aimed at helping Nevada’s small business community navigate new federal assistance programs, including loan and grant programs Rosen helped pass into law last week as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
“Thousands of Nevada’s small businesses and their hard-working employees are struggling as a result of the uncertainty that the coronavirus pandemic has unleashed around the world. Helping our small business community navigate this difficult time will be paramount for helping protect the health of our state’s economy in the long-run,” said Senator Rosen. “My team is taking steps to help Nevada small businesses understand the much-needed resources and federal support that is currently available to them, including the new loan and grant programs created by the CARES Act. I encourage Nevadans to reach out to my office, and I will continue fighting in Congress to ensure that our state’s small businesses owners, entrepreneurs, and the people they employ have the resources they need.”
Small businesses that are experiencing difficulties navigating federal assistance can send their inquiries and questions to SmallBusiness@Rosen.Senate.gov, and a team of professionals will respond to provide assistance.
