THURSDAY: SBA Administrator to Visit Baltimore, Discuss Economic Assistance Available for Businesses Affected by Bridge Collapse

Administrator Guzman Will Tour SBA Business Recovery Center, Join Gov. Moore for Press Conference

BALTIMORE, April 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — On Thursday, April 4, Administrator Isabel Casillas Guzman, head of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the voice in President Biden’s Cabinet for America’s more than 33 million small businesses, will travel to Baltimore, Md., to highlight federal resources available to help businesses withstand the economic impact of the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse as part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s whole-of-government approach to the recovery process.

Administrator Guzman will first host a closed-press roundtable alongside U.S. Senator Ben Cardin, Congressman Kweisi Mfume, and Mayor Brandon Scott to meet with small business owners affected by the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse and hear the challenges they are facing. Senator Cardin, Rep. Mfume, and Mayor Scott will then join Administrator Guzman for a tour of an SBA Business Recovery Center and media availability. In the afternoon, Administrator Guzman will join a press conference with Governor Wes Moore to provide an update on the SBA’s economic recovery efforts.

In the wake of the bridge collapse, the SBA has made low-interest, long-term Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) available to affected business owners to help them overcome temporary loss of revenue. The SBA also moved swiftly to open two Business Recovery Centers (BRC) on April 1 to assist business owners in completing their disaster loan applications, accept documents for existing applications, and provide status on loan applications.
