CARES Money for Coaching
The El Paso Chamber has been granted funds for business coaching under the auspices of The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, also known as the CARES Act. CARES money has been legislated by the United States Congress to address issues resulting from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are pleased to work with the City of El Paso to provide business coaching in this crucial time of reopening and rebuilding,” noted EPC President and CEO David Jerome, adding, “The Chamber is well equipped to coach businesses and their owners and leaders in proven methodologies to improve their scope and impact.” The CARES Act funds will help the Chamber reach businesses in need as well as provide the necessary information and insight to the business community as a whole as they restructure or reestablish their practices.
The Chamber has been leading efforts locally to help businesses during the pandemic with information through its Businesses Standing Together Facebook page, a variety of interviews and panel discussions, and through connecting members to various policy programs and governmental relief efforts. Those efforts are slated to continue through the summer and will adapt as the economic situation changes in the near future.
