The Small Business Administration (SBA) administers several types of programs to support small businesses, including loan guaranty and venture capital programs to enhance small business access to capital; contracting programs to increase small business opportunities in federal contracting; direct loan programs for businesses, homeowners, and renters to assist their recovery from natural disasters; and small business management and technical assistance training programs to assist business formation and expansion. This has grown especially acute in recent months due to the widespread, adverse impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the national economy. This book looks at some of the issues small businesses may face during the pandemic.
