Small Business Recovery with the SBA

February 8, 2022

Featuring Diedra Henry-Spires, Senior Advisor for COVID Programs

Small businesses are critical to economic opportunity in the U.S. employing approximately:

  • 75% of all workers over the age of 65
  • 50% of Black workers
  • 67% of Hispanic workers
  • 62% of workers with disabilities.

In 2021, small businesses faced renewed COVID restrictions and mandates, repeated supply-chain backups, and unfilled “hiring” signs. Join Diedra Henry-Spires as she discusses how the SBA is working with the White House, Capitol Hill, and small business owners on COVID recovery.
