SBA Assistance & Loan Forgiveness Available to Wineries

Wine Institute hosted a webinar with the Small Business Administration (SBA) and Rep. Mike Thompson on Friday to provide information on important assistance programs for wineries. Nearly 500 people participated in the webinar which addressed two key SBA programs – the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL).

On the webinar, Julie Cowles, District Director for the SBA’s San Francisco regional office addressed a number of questions about how to access these programs. Her presentation from Friday’s webinar provides a great deal of information on assistance programs and can be found at the link below along with a recording of the webinar.
