Your Go-To Source for COVID-19 Small Business Knowledge

The CEI Women’s Business Center is here to support your business during these uncertain times.  We know that now, more than ever, you need a supportive network, clear concise information and trusted resources.

Thanks to the generous support of the Small Business Administration, we are providing an in-depth response to the impact that COVID-19 is having on small businesses.

To keep you up-to-date on the latest information, guidelines and best practices, we’re hosting online workshops and webinars and bringing in expert service providers to help you navigate your next steps as a business.


We’ve worked with our colleagues throughout CEI to provide information about available State and federal resources; including:

  1. The SBA Economic Disaster Loan Program (EIDL Loans and Advances),
  2. The Paycheck Protection Program,
  3. Pandemic Unemployment Assistance and Unemployment Insurance,
  4. Employee Retention Credit,
  5. IRS Economic Impact Payments, changed tax reporting deadlines, and
  6. Funding options and other resources

We want to help you navigate the next steps as a business and will be offering presentations and materials on topics such as: how to pivot, preparing for online sales, reaching customers online, re-openly safely, managing a remote workforce, opportunities for growth and budgeting for the unknown.

Our offices remain closed to the public, but we are hard at work!
