We have taken our time to wait for the Cares Act, The Economic Injury Disaster Loans, and The Families First Act to settle in so we could synthesize and forward the information we believe is most relevant to small businesses that build, refit and repair boats. Ask your accountant if they are willing and/or able to help with business grants and SBA loan packages. Check with your SBA district representative regarding financial support if your supply chain has been interrupted. Please forward relevant information to your employees.
We continue to monitor the latest personal and business financial stimulus packages and legislation as it is passed and implemented in this very fluid environment and will be posting these updates. See links below with resources that you may need. If you have found additional information that you feel would be helpful to ABBRA members, we will be happy to post it in a bi-weekly newsletter. We will be sending news from around the country regarding how boatyards and related businesses are dealing with the required changes in their operations.
