Our first conversation today with Jim Martin, District Director of Virginia for SCORE was full of details about the changes they’re making to the organization to be more efficient in serving their clients. We also talked about their new AgriBusiness program and how you can be a mentor OR a client. For more information, visit their website: https://www.score.org/

Our second conversation with Herb Melrath, business consultant both for the Front Royal/Warren County Chamber of Commerce and the Maryland Small Business Development Center gave us an update on the requirements for the EIDL program. Changes have been made to the amount of money that can be borrowed, how long you can defer payments and what you can use the borrowed money for.
