FRESNO – Senator Andreas Borgeas (R-Fresno) has launched a website with resources to assist people, businesses, local governments, non-profits, and others impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID–19) pandemic.
“As a father of two young boys with elderly family members, I believe it is important to do our best effort to keep the public informed on the rapidly evolving Coronavirus situation. Look after your loved ones, take the necessary precautions, and find creative ways to support local businesses during this unprecedented time,” said Senator Borgeas.
Below are a few resources listed on the page:
- The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is providing up to $2 million in emergency loans for small businesses impacted by closures.
- The Employment Development Department (EDD) is providing assistance to workers sick or quarantined, people impacted by reduced work hours, self-employed individuals, and employers.
- You can also find ways to deliver meals, donate blood, support nonprofits, create hygiene kits, volunteer at a food bank or perform wellness checks on your neighbors through California Volunteers. Volunteer here.
