Additional info on HIRE from Kansas Main Street

Jessica Buchholz by Jessica Buchholz, Events Coordinator | March 24, 2020

…..We regret to announce that all our initial funds available through the HIRE Fund have been allocated at this time. However, we are keeping our form open and will continue to collect information from Kansas hospitality businesses on the losses they are facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

By filling out the form, you can help us assess the need across our state, which we will work to communicate with officials at the state and national level. We are grateful for your participation and willingness to share this information with us, and we plan to reach back out to you if, and when, new resources become available.

In the meantime, we also recommend you consider applying for the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Disaster Relief Loans, which have recently been made available to all 105 counties in Kansas. Further details and applications are available at disasterloan.sba.gov/ela. We also continue to update our website at kansascommerce.gov/covid-19-response with tools and resources available to Kansas businesses.…..
