The North Carolina Pro Bono Resource Center is launching a remote legal clinic to help small businesses and nonprofits with legal needs from the impact of COVID-19. The NC Small Business/Nonprofit Initiative will match qualifying small businesses or nonprofits with 25 or fewer employees with NC law firms. Pro bono lawyers will be matched to offer a free 45-minute phone or virtual legal consultation, helping these small business owners or nonprofits navigate the CARES Act, or questions related to employment, contracts, commercial leases, insurance and insolvency issues. For more information, view their flyer.
There’s a new official federal resource website for U.S. small businesses affected by COVID-19 (Coronavirus). The URL is https://www-qa.covid-sb.org. It includes information on Financing Assistance, Contracting Assistance, Tax Credits, FLMA and Labor Resources, OSHA, and Cybersecurity.
