Become A Client

In light of the current Coronavirus situation and for the safety of our clients and our community, the SBDC offices are open by appointment only. We are still able to provide services to our small business owners and entrepreneurs virtually. The SBDC offers virtual (and in-person, by appointment only) one-on-one business advising in a variety of areas by professionally trained advisors who maintain the highest ethical standards of client confidentiality.

Business advising services are provided at no cost and are scheduled as often as needed to enable professional advisors to serve as resource support. Our advisors have the ability to assist with the SBA's EIDL application at this time.

To speak with an advisor, please fill out the "Request Advising" form.
