Douglas County Updates Economic Vitality Webpage to Assist Local BusinessesMinden, NV - Douglas County continues to provide update information updates on the County’s Economic Vitality webpage, providing additional resources to local businesses facing unprecedented economic uncertainty during the COVID-19 health crisis.

On March 27, 2020, the President signed into law the CARES Act, containing $376 billion in relief for American workers and small businesses.
“We want to make sure our businesses have access to information that could possibly assist them through this pandemic,” said Lisa Granahan, Economic Vitality Manager. “Our business community is essential to our local economy and we are dedicated to continue to work with our local, regional and state partners to keep the information flowing regarding relief and recovery.”

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has several temporary programs to provide assistance to businesses mostly in the form of low-interest loans. Some of the products are available directly through application to SBA while others require the businesses to work with a SBA-certified bank or credit union. Businesses in need of help to understand the different products offered, should contact Nevada Small Business Development Center Rural Advisor, Kathy Halbardier, by e-mail at kathyshalbardier@gmail.com or by phone at (775) 720-4428.
