These loans are available to small businesses that have been impacted in all 159 Counties in Georgia.
With the world in a pandemic, it is very important that our small businesses stay active. The communities in Georgia must help them do that. This is why the Georgia Governor, Brian B Kemp has decided to take this route. To ensure that in the midst of panic and uncertainty, that we stay pulled together in our communities. This will provide stability for not only the small businesses that are navigating through this tough time but also for the communities that they are in. With the SBA providing aid to small businesses, their loans could be the difference between closure and success.

Governor Kemp reached out by saying that, “This is great news for Georgia small business owners,”. “As we continue to navigate the impact of COVID-19 on our economy, small business owners can apply for much-needed funding to continue operation and pay their employees. My thanks to the Trump Administration for their swift action to protect small business owners throughout the country.”
Governor Kemp, along with the rest of the Georgia representatives understand the situation and are taking clear steps to bring the counties of Georgia’s financial success.
