The Hawaii District SBA Office is encouraging small business in Hawaii to get prepared and find out about disaster assistance funding sooner than later at a free SBA webinar on March 15.

“This free webinar will provide useful information to help small business owners check their readiness for unexpected disasters”, said Jane Sawyer, Hawaii SBA District Director.

Representatives from the SBA’s Office of Disaster Assistance along with Agility Recovery Solutions, a former division of GE that claims 21 years disaster recovery and business continuity experience, will explain how the disaster loan program works, eligibility, how an SBA declaration is made, details on the application process, how loan amounts are decided, the role of insurance, and tips on managing a swift recovery. A question and answer session is included.
