Register for the fourth in a series of National Small Business Town Halls, at 12 p.m. today, to get the information you need about federal relief for small business owners.

  • Watch: No. 3, "What You Need to Know to Get Your Stimulus Loan Faster," above. 

The federal government's Paycheck Protection Program, already well under way for many types of small businesses, is now also available to independent contractors. Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve just announced details on its own massive relief program. But while the government is making an extraordinary amount of funds available to help companies weather the current crisis, so far relatively few have been able to benefit. Confusion over rules, delays in processing applications, and a host of other issues have stunted the effort, costing many entrepreneurs more time than they can afford.

Inc., in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, is on a mission to help business owners get the information necessary to navigate important government programs and to keep their businesses running during this unprecedented time.

Join us for a virtual National Small Business Town Hall on Friday, April 17, at noon Eastern time. Inc. editor-at-large Kimberly Weisul and Neil Bradley, the executive vice president and chief policy officer at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, will discuss all manner of new developments related to the programs, and take your most urgent questions along with a panel of experts.
