Do you have any information on the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)?

Here is SBDC’s recent information shared regarding the Paycheck Protection Program  (April 6th, 2020)

I'm a farmer and have been affected by COVID-19 financially. Are there any resources or loan options for me?

USDA Service Centers in New York will continue to be open for business by phone appointment only and field work will continue with appropriate social distancing.

While our program delivery staff will continue to come into the office, they will be working with our producers by phone, and using online tools whenever possible.

All Service Center visitors wishing to conduct business with FSA are required to call their Service Center to schedule a phone appointment. In the event a Service Center is not currently available to serve customers on location, producers can receive assistance from the closest alternate Service Center by phone. Learn more here: farmers.gov/coronavirus


Is the building on lockdown? Am I allowed to continue co-working?

Currently, no. You are allowed to continue using the space by abiding by our guidelines:

  • Check your temperature at the kiosk upon entry
  • Maintain wearing a mask as you move throughout the building at all times
  • Follow physical distancing of 6 ft apart with fellow members
  • Disinfect any surfaces used during your session

Thank you!

How do I best utilize our virtual community?

Stay in contact. We are here to support one another. Keep booking 1-on-1’s virtually (Private booking link is pinned in Slack for thINCubated Companies and Refinery participants) We’re also working on some really cool virtual meetups, workshops and videos to assist everyone in the coming weeks.


Take your time. We have every reason to practice gratitude and we are here for your support as EVERYONE has been impacted- businesses small and large, families, people with loved ones afar, jobs in social settings, etc. etc. etc. Have self-kindness.
