Resources for Small Business Affected by COVID-19

In light of the current situation, ICIC and Kaiser Permanente have decided to postpone the Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) Fresno Opening Seminar date to Early-September. We remain optimistic that we will be able to come together in person for the Opening Seminar at that point.

In the short-term, ICIC is offering webinars and resources prioritizing business recovery strategies and emergency relief solutions to the small business community as they recover from the coronavirus crisis. As a result, we’ve created the Small Business Resource Center, which hosts a wide range of national and local resources aimed at supporting small businesses through the COVID-19 pandemic. You can find local California resources here.
