Counselors will provide free counseling on a wide variety of matters designed to help these business owners re-establish their operations, how to overcome the effects of the disaster and plan for their future.

Services include assessing business economic injury, evaluating the business’s strength, cash flow projections and most importantly, a review of all options to ensure each business makes decisions that are appropriate for its situation. They will also provide program information, answer questions and help businesses apply for this much needed financial help.
