Do you have questions about the new COVID-19 small business funding options or IRS tax filing requirements?

Join the DC Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD) for a special small business financing webinar to learn about the new CARES ACT provisions for businesses and independent contractors.

District-based small business owners are invited to join DSLBD as well as guests from the Small Business Admisitration (SBA), international bank HSBC and financial services corporation KPMG for a special webinar that will cover the new CARES Act provisions, current IRS tax filing requirements and available small business funding options.

Participants can also sign-up for a free 30-minute consultation with KPMG or HBSC to discuss specific business needs by emailing

Representatives include DSLBD Director Kristi Whitfield, SBA Economic Development Specialist Nirav “Nick” Rajpara, and HBSC National Sales Manager Mary Makfinsky.

Free, 1-on-1 virtual consultation with KPMG Spark or HSBC after the session is offered, but to be considered, you must complete the Find a Lender Survey on the DC Capital Connector website. Individual small business consultations begin after the webinar starting at 2 p.m. Consultations will be conducted every 30-minutes.

Someone from the DC Capital Connector team will follow-up with you to schedule your consultation after registration and the Find a Lender Survey is submitted. Feel free to contact for more information.

The webinar takes place from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, April 30. Register online by visiting the eventbrite page.
