It may be April Fools' Day, but we know times are no joke for small business in this current state of affairs. Our teams are working across our footprint to provide guidance, support and capital to meet the growing challenges facing small businesses today so America becomes healthier.
Based on current conditions, health and safety precautions, which includes closing of non-essential businesses, will remain in affect at least until mid April and potentially May. This means we all must determine what our new business models will be moving forward, even if its only for 30, 45, 60, or 90 days -- it's alot, we know.
As you face on-going challenges and pivots in today's new economy, we’d like to share with you some of our initiatives, resources and activities during this crisis, so you can connect with community and equip your business.
LiftFund has decided to fully take on the COVID-19 crisis by only providing COVID-19 related products and services to small businesses. We've designed a centralized relief landing page, and developed webinars to support small businesses and partners during this time. Visit our updated site. We are also working closely with our SBA and IRS partners to see how the Economic Injury products and the Payment Protection Plan will help small businesses and our clients. Learn more about those resources here.
We are so amazed and proud of our client’s resiliency and dedication to our community. Even during the most trying times, they are giving back – like Thuy who is making protective face shields on her 3D printer at home and donating them to the medical community, or Boyan and Chris, who are making hand sanitizer from their distillery. During this tough time, community is what keeps us strong.
We want to thank our COVID-19 relief partners on this journey for their immediate support. With so many ever-changing pieces in this current landscape, we are grateful for private and public leadership including: Bexar County, El Paso County, City of El Paso, San Antonio Area Foundation, USAA, Frost Bank, Wells Fargo, H.E.B. and many more that are on the horizon in supporting small businesses during the COVID-19 crisis.
