SBA to Host Workshop for Small Business in Peoria

May 14

5/8/2009

PHOENIX, AZ – The Arizona District Office of the Small Business Administration will host an evening workshop for Peoria area small businesses on May 14th to discuss both the small business provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act – the recently enacted federal stimulus legislation – and advice on managing a contracting economy for Peoria small businesses.

“The Peoria workshop is one of a series being conducted by SBA across the state and is designed to assist small business owners with issues fundamental to their success,” states SBA District Director Robert Blaney. “Our goal is to educate Arizona small businesses about opportunities that will exist as a result of the new legislation, and provide information to assist them in coping with the increasing challenge of managing a business in a down economy.”

The SBA has hosted or will host small business meetings explaining the impact of the stimulus package to other communities in the coming weeks including Yuma (March 26), Tucson (March 25), Surprise (April 16), Casa Grande (April 8), Sierra Vista (April 2), Glendale (April 1, 21), Show Low (April 28), Flagstaff (April 22), Lake Havasu City (May 6), and Peoria (May 14).

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act provided $730 million to SBA and created a comprehensive package of tax breaks, financial assistance and market enhancements designed to help foster entrepreneurship and job creation. Programs to be discussed at the workshop include:

• $375 million for temporary fee reductions or eliminations on SBA loans and increased SBA guaranteed shares, up to 90 percent for certain loans
• $255 million for a new loan program to help small businesses meet existing debt payments
• $30 million for expanding SBA’s Microloan program, enough to finance up to $50 million in new lending and $24 million in technical assistance grants to microlenders
• $15 million for expanding SBA’s Surety Bond Guarantee program
• Small business tax breaks includes accelerated depreciation, extended expensing of capital goods purchases, and credits for hiring disadvantaged people
• Small business contracting opportunities including those “shovel ready" in Arizona

Stricter credit standards among lenders and the devaluation of collateral due to falling property values have significantly challenged many Peoria small business owners who either are trying to service existing debt or are searching for new loans.

The workshop will be held at the Peoria Council Chamber, 8401 West Monroe Street in Peoria, between Monroe Street and Cinnabar Avenue, and between 85th and 83rd Avenues. Time is 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

Admission is free but seating is limited. Pre-registration is strongly recommended. To register online, go to www.sba.gov/az , select the “On-line Registration” link, select “Seminars” from the dropdown menu. Select “Public Meeting: General Information” and register for the event. Alternatively, attendees may register by calling 602-745-7200 or by emailing Arizona@sba.gov.
