Contributor: Cate Visser

In our efforts to keep you abreast of the resources available to those in the rural health community, we wanted to share the following information on an upcoming webinar series:

The National Rural Health Association and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) have partnered to present a series of regional webinars to highlight Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding available to support America's rural healthcare providers, titled Rural Providers and the Paycheck Protection Program

There are still funds in the PPP, and there is potential for more funds to be appropriated for this program in forthcoming relief packages.  Don't miss this opportunity.  We strongly urge rural providers to apply to the PPP and save the dates of these important webinars. 

The webinar format includes presentations by NRHA and SBA with an opportunity for questions and answers for both current loan recipients as well as those who have not yet applied. Please log in or dial in to learn more information on the PPP and to hear from: 

  • Maggie Elehwany, Vice President of Government Affairs and Policy, National Rural Health Association and Brock Slabach, Senior Vice President of Member Services, National Rural Health Association 

  • Dan Nordberg, Director, Office of Rural Affairs and Regional Administrator, U.S. Small Business Administration 

  • SBA Regional Leadership
