    Shaunese Teamer, Executive Director BGLCC

    Dear Members,

    Although we are weeks into Phase 4, we are still reaching out in support of community businesses that have not had the opportunity to completely open. Each day there are new reports on a wide range of businesses that are taking next steps to reestablish themselves against the backdrop of COVID-19, requiring that we continue to enforce health and safety measures for our customers and our community. As we work together through the new phase guidelines, we will continue to welcome and see a flourish of new business activities.

    The Buffalo Grove Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce is committed to keeping you informed about new funding opportunities and marketing avenues to promote your business and look forward to sharing new programming initiatives with you in the near future. We encourage you to stay involved with the Chamber and contact our office to learn more about our business networking events, education series and new ways that you can become more involved. We too are transitioning into a new format of staying connected through virtual programming and look forward to coordinating new initiatives that will provide value for all of our member businesses.

    Thank you for your patience, as we become better fitted into our “new normal”.  We look forward to having you join us each time that we are able to showcase our creativity in developing new special events in formats that recognize social distancing with results that are also socially successful.

    Please continue to keep us informed of your business highlights and activities, so that they may be shared with business colleagues and consumers that play a major role towards completing the mission and goals of our organization.

    Stay connected and be well,

    Shaunese

    U.S. Small Business Administration Funding

    U.S. Small Business Administration PPP Loan Forgiveness Application

     

      NEW   
     The SBA Economic Injury
     Disaster Loan Program
    (commonly referred to as EIDL)
    has re-opened for applications.
     
    The program consists of two parts.
    An Advance is available in the amount of $1,000 per employee, up to a maximum of $10,000.

    This money is in the form of a grant, however, if you apply for/receive Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funds, the EIDL Advance will be combined with PPP when you apply for forgiveness.

     

    The second part of EIDL
    is a low interest 3.75% loan.
     
    Here are a few things to know about the loan.
     

    ·  SBA will determine the amount you are eligible to receive. You can request less at loan signing time

    ·  Payments are deferred for 12 months, but interest accrues from the time of funding

    ·  The loan term is 30 years, but there is no prepayment penalty. You can pay back the loan at any time

    ·  The loan can only be used to pay regular working capital expenses.

    You can't re-locate, purchase fixed assets,
    expand your business or pay off/re-finance debt with this loan.

    You can apply now https://covid19relief.sba.gov/#/
