The Small Business Administration’s program for Businesses of all sizes is available now in the declared counties. The SBA has notified us of programs available for businesses impacted by the wildfires and wind storm. For businesses in Yamhill County, you may be eligible for economic injury assistance. The attached documents below outline the programs in English and in Spanish.
Please read the documents carefully and reach out to the SBA for assistance.
