Let IAM Help you Navigate the CARES Act

U.S. Based IAM Members:

IAM has put together information from several areas to update you on available financial resources to help your business during the Pandemic. There is some overlap in the information, but we wanted to be sure you could find what you need all in one place.

Of particular note, we have two “hands-on” resources for your use, should you desire it.

The first is an exclusive deal IAM negotiated on behalf of our members to receive one-on-one help at a reduced price to help navigate the various programs available to Companies under the CARES Act from Foster-Garvey’s CARES Act Team.

Additionally, IAM has been in contact with the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Regional Office of Disaster Relief. They are open to personal phone calls to walk members through the details of the Economic Injury Disaster Loan program. You can contact Ms. Loeita Williams of SBA directly. Her number is 470-363-5936. Information on loans is changing quickly, and Ms. Williams was very willing to discuss what was available.
